Google Docs


Do you get assigned a lot of group projects? Do you frequently have to email essays and homework to yourself, or save them on a flash drive so you can work on them on different computers? If so, you may want to start using Google Docs, a component of Google Drive.

Google Drive allows you to create documents, spreadsheets, and presentations from any computer that has an Internet connection--and since your documents are saved for you online, you never have to worry about carrying your work around on a flash drive again!
