Streamlining Communications: Ending the Email Deluge (Google Drive)

Sam Clarke, University of Sheffield

Howard 5225, Pennine

In the current digital era, much of our time is spent composing and replying to emails.

In this session Sam looks at ways of using Google Drive / Docs to reduce the volume of email traffic by centralising and streamlining our communications. This has the added benefit of reducing the amount of information contained within emails hence reducing the possibility of Staff/Students acting on out of date information stored in their inbox.

Learning outcomes
  • Know the pitfalls of relying on email
  • Where and how Google can help
  • Understanding the limitations of the systems
