It’s not Google Docs – it’s Google Drive!

 

I shall not call it Google Docs. I shall not call it Google Docs. I shall not call it Google Docs. How did I miss that one? It’s only been a year since Google Docs became Google Drive, or at least, integrated into Google Drive. Had it not been for the recent email from makeuseof, I’d still be wandering in ignorance. That link has some good tips about how to get the best use out of Google Drive for research. To me , they were two separate things. Google Drive was cloud storage and Google Docs was … Google Docs. I just thought it looked nicer. I confess I was a bit nonplussed when my MacBook decided to send a Powerpoint presentation to someone by using Google Drive instead of as an attachment. That was in GMail. As it turned out it was quicker to put the said Powerpoint onto a USB drive and take it to the person’s office. By the time I got back, Google Drive had sent me the link to include in my email. All this was without explanation or by your leave. Google just did it. Google might have thought it was being helpful but had no idea I had no idea. Makeuseof has straightened me out. So watch the video and then go to the Google Drive support site where you will find another really good video and some helpful information. You, too, will now stop calling it Google Docs. This is why we need teachers on the Net. They don’t let you make fundamental errors in process.
