Interested in learning more about Google Drive? You've come to the right place! The Google Drive link in the black bar at the top of your Gmail window is the "launching point" for a set of online productivity tools. These tools, sometimes collectively called "Google Docs" or "Google Apps," offer free online document storage and management, word processing, and other applications. They are available from any computer connected to the Internet, so you always have access to your files and the programs you need to edit them.

Google Drive Video Tutorials
This series of video tutorials are very user-friendly and a good place to start. However, they are not produced by APS and include ads (you'll see a random ad at the beginning, middle and end of each video). APS is not responsible for the content of the ads! However, if you can put up with a few seconds of advertising, these tutorials are good to show the basics and beyond.
