In addition to its ubiquitous email service, Gmail, Google offers a free suite of productivity tools that are easily shared. This suite, called Google Drive, includes collaboratively editable documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and drawings. Georgetown now supports Google Drive; go to “Drive” after logging in to Georgetown Apps. Also included is a form tool that allows you easily to create questions sets; the results of participants’ answers to these questions are automatically tracked on a spreadsheet that the question set’s creator can view at any time.
You can also create collaborative documents in Google Docs, allowing students to write or collaborate asynchronously on a project or assignments, as well as leave comments for each other. You can also comment on the document and track changes, seeing who made changes when. For more information, please visit the Georgetown Google Apps page.
