Working on a group assignment? Coordinate with Google Drive
20 March 2017
During your studies, you may need to coordinate a group assignment with other students. Why not give Google Drive a go? Drive allows you to store and synchronize documents in the cloud. Upload your assignment to Drive, convert to Google doc format and share with the group. This allows each person in the group to edit the same document so you won’t have to collate multiple versions! You’ll also be able to take advantage of unlimited storage in the cloud. Read more about Google Drive.
