Google Docs

Google Docs is a cloud-based (online) suite of productivity and collaboration tools, that is compatible with the Microsoft Office suite and includes:

Word processing



Google Drive

Google Drive is the file storage system for organization of Google Docs. Think of it as a digital locker and cloud storage for files. Drive stores, syncs, and shares your files on the cloud so you can access them anywhere you have Internet access.

  • Cloud storage is safe and secure
    • Only the assigned user student and / or teacher can access their data using their password.
    • Google Drive data is stored in Google's highly secure data centers. You own your files and control who you share them with.
    • Accessible from devices, such as PCs, Macs, iPads, Androids, tablets, phones, etc., with an Internet connection. No additional software is required.
    • All the files are safe even if they lose or damage their device.
  • Single documents or folders can be shared
    • Invite other students and teachers to download, view, or edit the specific files you choose
    • Sharing Levels
      • View only: they can see the document, but they can't edit
      • Comment only: they can see the document, and leave comments
      • Edit: They can see, edit, and share the document
    • Teachers and students can create shared folders, allowing students to turn in work electronically
    • New Docs added to folders automaticallly inherit the sharing properties of the folders
    • Documents can be added to multiple folders
    • Upload a variety of document types
  • Monitor collaboration through revision history
    • Every change in a Google Document is saved. You are able to see every single version of document.
    • You can see who and when the change was made, and revert back to a previous version.
