  • Google drive is good for team collaboration

    For collaborative team work, it is good and wonderful. Content wise, it is simple and easy to use. For pedagogy, it is very useful for simultaneous and instant on-line group work, especially good for student doing group project together. As we can amend any Google excel sheets and word files and Google document at the same time in different places. Concerning engagement, I think that the Google form is easy and free to use. Google form is an very effective tool for storage and collection of questionnaire data. Tip for usage: there needs to have a very clear filing and folder system. When the files are too many, sometimes, we won't know where the files had been put. For Google form, there are some technical problems which sometimes we don't know how to add the total scores automatically on the sheet so that the users can see their total scores immediately. There is now still no [Add-on] that can solve this problem yet. Area for improvement : For folder and filing, if there are filings or folder openings to file up every types of files automatically, it will be the best.
