Test Drive: Getting Under the Hood of Google Drive Friday, 4/25/14 Noon - 1:00PM West Conference Room

Do you know about Google Drive? Sounds like an accessory for your car, but it’s actually a powerful tool available to all students, staff, and faculty at USC. Many people use Google Drive to collaborate on documents, presentations, and spreadsheets. It also includes ways to make simple surveys, collect and analyze data and make charts.

Google Drive can also be used to publish documents, letting others view your work without the ability to edit it. We’ll discuss some of the cool tricks you can use to enhance your academic work as well as some general Google search tips and tricks.
