A major benefit to using Google Drive is having the ability to do real-time collaboration when using the Google Docs file formats, which is Google’s native productivity suite of apps, similar to Microsoft Office, but on the web. With Google Docs, you’ll have the capability to collaborate in real-time with others allowing your entire class to simultaneously update a single Google Document file, while maintaining the ability to track all of the changes, view the history to see who made what change, and restore previous versions.
Here, we will show you how to create a Google Document, share it with your class to simultaneously edit, and provide additional information on collaboration options.
