There are a multitude of apps and software that help students collaborate and get their work done–one such app is Google Drive. Most people know that in addition to having a Google email account when you sign up, there is also a way for students and professionals to access the same capabilities as Microsoft Office Suites but entirely off the web. However, what makes this stand out is the fact that not only does it auto-save to your Google Drive (a way to store documents and files on the internet) but it also allows multiple people to edit the same document in real time.
This capability also allows for people to see who is editing and where by indicating a certain color to that user. This feature is something that you can take on the go with Google Docs. This app is available in the Apple Store for iPhones and iPads, Chrome Web Store for Windows phone or tablet users, and also in the Google Play store for Android users. This versatile app allows you to open any documents that you had made on a computer or create new documents. This app allows for a mobile and tablet friendly interface (as using the normal web browser version could be quite hard).
This app has all the capabilities of working with Google Docs. However, Google has also created an App called Google Docs that allows for editing of all of the other file types, such as a spreadsheet, forms, etc. In the Google Docs App it is only compatible with document type files.
With Google Drive, there are a multitude of options, such as backing up your videos and photos straight to your Google Drive. This can be accessed through any computer simply by logging into your Gmail account. You can also upload and share documents in real-time, on-the-go. This allows for students to successfully integrate and collaborate with their peers on more versatile and easy way. At any moment in the day can students answers questions, work on their assignments, collaborate with peers, turn in assignments by sharing it with their professor, and finally keep all of their work and education assignments all in one place with quick and easy access from any computer, tablet, or phone.
