A useful video tutorial here, just over 16 minutes long. It runs through the basics of using Google drive and how you can use it to collaborate with others. It also touches on Google Hangout.

 

I use Google Drive with my students as a writing space because I teach English via Skype. It suits our needs perfectly. Students create several folders e.g. some are homework spaces; collaborative areas such as wikis; creative writing pages and as a virtual space that we can jump into during the lesson to work on activities. It works for us. As a teacher I can dip into shared spaces at any time and guide and support learning which is a real advantage.

flea palmer's curator insight, August 30, 2013 6:56 AM

This is a really thorough tutorial and very timely as I'm currently exploring using Google Drive with students. Our dispersed team of Learning Technologists already use it for collaboration but there is not much use as yet by our academics and students. The ability to be able to integrate Drive with Google Hangouts is really powerful and has the potential to be a great tool for supporting Distance Learning.

Like the tractor beam on the Death Star, the nebulous world of networked online storage is slowly pulling in all digital information. If you haven’t yet gotten on board, 2013′s Google Drive would be a perfect place for a college student to start, whether for educational purposes like collaborating on class projects, or storing all those Instagrams of your food. What follows are some of the coolest tips and tricks Drive users have found in the last few months and shared with the rest of us.
