Google Docs, Sheets and Slides
All University of York users have access to Google Apps for Education, which includes Google Drive and tools such as Google Docs, Sheets and Slides (the Google equivalent of Word, Excel and PowerPoint). Documents created in Google Drive are stored entirely online and can be shared with others for collaborative editing. Google Drive is also available as an iOS and Android app so can be used on phones and tablets. The IT Services team run Google knowledge sharing events on a number of Google Apps and we can strongly recommend attending one of these sessions if you’re new to using Google tools.
If you’re already familiar with Google tools but want to find out how you can use them more as part of your teaching, or have an idea you’d like to try but need some assistance, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
