Kickstart Mini Workshop: How to work collaboratively

kickstart-mini-workshop-with-borderThe December School of Kinesiology “Kickstart Mini Workshop” focused on Google Drive and Google Docs, as well as on alternative file sharing systems that the University supports. 

After providing a general overview of Google Drive participants were guided through an exercise demo of Google Docs, Sheets, Forms, and Slides. Discussions about security, ownership and sharing, search, and revision history followed. Of particular interest was the handling of Microsoft Office files in Google Drive (upload/download).

For anyone who is interested in getting a better understanding of Google Drive and Docs, this interactive website provided by the University Tech Center is very helpful. We would like to encourage you to take a look at it:

In addition, Jennifer Horn, CEHD IT services, provided an overview of all UofM supported file sharing systems. Jennifer summarized these systems by stating, “The easier to share, the less secure files are.”
