Sharing within Google Drive

Collaborators within Google Drive

  • I often have students put together a Google Slide presentation for their group projects
  • One person from the group will open a Google Slide presentation
  • That person will then invite the other members of the group to collaborate
  • All members of the group can work on the same Google Slide from different devices
  • They will each see changes made by their group members in real time

Protecting your Work

  • If you are concerned about someone copying your work and submitting it as their own, then share your work in PDF format
  • This is the only secure way to protect work if you do not want people to be able to edit it
  • It is very important to know that recipients can always make a copy of “view only” files and just edit as they wish
  • Google Docs were designed to allow people to collaborate and edit shared documents. It was not created to “protect” products.
