Examples
  • Faculty member posts subject-matter documents in a shared folder on Google Drive for their students.
  • Students post classroom notes and course materials on Google Drive to be accessed from their residence computer or a mobile device such as laptop or an iPad, 24/7, in class, and any computer lab on campus, as well as any location with WiFi or other Internet access on or off campus.
  • Any user can share documents with anyone on the Internet, subject to policies, and data security and other aplicable laws such as copyright. Google Drive is not an exception to any laws.
