Google Drive—along with associated productivity apps like Docs, Sheets, and Slides—allows you to create and store files that can be accessed anywhere, and then share those files with others instead of attaching them to emails. You can also collaborate with other users on the same document in real-time.
Google Drive is one of the core services in G Suite for Education.
Google is constantly upgrading applications, so stay informed about new Drive features and services.
- Get started with Drive
Drive lets you keep all your work in one place, view different file formats without buying extra software, and access your files from any device.
- Get started with shared drives
Shared drives are drive spaces where teams can easily store, search, and access their files anywhere, from any device. Unlike files in My Drive, files in a shared drive belong to the team instead of an individual. Even if members leave, the files stay exactly where they are so your team can continue to share information and get work done.
While you can upload practically any file and store it in Google Drive, these productivity apps allow you create and edit your own files on the web.
Docs lets you write reports, create joint project proposals, keep track of meeting notes, and more.
Sheets lets you handle task lists, create project plans, analyze data with charts and filters, and more.
Slides lets you create pitch decks, project presentations, training modules, and more.
Forms lets you manage event registrations, create quizzes, analyze responses, and more.
Sites lets you build public and private project hubs to share info with others.
