Google Drive: Get It Organized

$46

with Chris Suggs

Calendar Apr 15, 2021 at 7 pm, runs for 4 weeks

Google Drive is an example of a cloud-based place where you can create and save files of all kinds - word documents, spreadsheets, surveys and more.  You can access the files from most devices and more than one person can work on them at the same time.  If you’re using it for personal use, Drive applications are free.  It’s a practical way to learn programs without investing in software.

This workshop is designed for people who already use Google Drive and want to learn how to make the most of Drive including uploading, organizing, naming and sharing files.  This is a live online class.

No class 04/22/21.

If you'd like an introduction to Google Drive, please send an email to adultedinfo@ellsworthschools.org, and we'll be happy to assist you!
