Welcome to The Complete Google Drive Course. This course will teach you to understand how to use and become familiar with the storage and productivity component of Google Suite: Google Drive and Google Apps.
Google Drive is a safe and secure online file storage service that allows for easy collaboration and sharing. It is compatible with all types of files, ranging from PDFs to images to videos. Unlike its competitors, Google Drive offers up to 15 GB of free storage and a variety of online tools. One of its biggest features is its ability for multiple people to simultaneously work and collaborate on a project together. It encompasses four integrated applications: Google Docs, Google Slides, Google Sheets, and Google Forms.
Google Docs is a document management and editing tool. Docs allow you to create, edit, and update any documents. Docs is highly compatible, allowing you to choose from several file formats to download from. Google Drive’s document editing tool is easy to learn with the understanding of any basic word processor, but it offers much more to allow more experienced users to create complex and intricate documents.
Google Slides focuses on designing visually-appealing presentations for both a professional and casual setting. When compared to Microsoft Powerpoint, Slides offers the benefit of simplicity. With its various templates and themes, Slides can be as simple as plugging text into the provided text boxes. However, you can take your presentation one step further by adding in customizations. By inserting images, animations, transitions, charts, and diagrams you can amaze your audience! Take advantage of Google Drive’s presentation tool the next time you give a demonstration or lecture.
Google Sheets is a spreadsheets program that lets you create and format spreadsheets. Sheets allow you to organize your data by creating intricate charts and tables. When dealing with large amounts of data, you can create and edit formulas to perform calculations on your data, like you would with a calculator. Businesses should look to take advantage of the many collaborative tools Sheets provide along with its options for privacy. Learning the syntax of Sheets can lead to complex formulas that perform calculations on an innumerable amount of data. Google Drive’s tools allow you to navigate through your spreadsheets and data with efficiency.
Google Forms walks you through the production and distribution of surveys and questionnaires. If you are a teacher or tutor, you can also convert these ordinary forms into quizzes. While Forms may not be as easily accessible as the other Google Drive tools, it is still a useful system to understand. You can create surveys, quickly collect, and analyze responses and information all in one application.
Google Drive and its four integrated Google Apps are powerful tools that help increase productivity and efficiency. In addition to that, this course will also help you improve your organization, collaboration, and communication skills. Some of the many things that you can accomplish on Google Drive include:
Updating your resume (Google Docs)
