On Thursday, March 9, at 1:00 p.m. in Old Main 115, the Center for Online Learning & Innovation (COLI) is hosting a workshop introducing Google Drive and related productivity tools specifically for office and administrative use. Come learn the variety of ways you can employ Google Apps to shift your time and effort away from mundane tasks and toward the more important parts of your work.
In offices across campus, colleagues regularly exchange, distribute and collaborate on digital files. Emailing files as attachments is cumbersome because if each person makes changes to their copy of the file, the changes must then be separately included in a master file.
Here’s where Google Apps helps. For example, a Google Doc lives on the web and can be shared to multiple contributors. Each can add to, modify or just comment on content within that file. It’s a single document that efficiently collects all contributions in real-time. Google Sheets offers the same features for spreadsheets and Google Slides is great for collaborating on a presentation slidedeck.
