Your Technology account
- Email: account used for Blackboard & other official stuff
- Google Drive/Docs: mimics most Microsoft Office programs; Word, PowerPoint, Excel
- This tool also allows students to upload Office files for storage online. Conversely, Items created on Google Docs can be downloaded as Office files.
- Files in Docs can be edited, put in websites, emailed, or shared.
- Much more: Google Sites, Youtube, and other tools
Student accounts are permanent on request (contact Computer Services). This makes them ideal for portfolios, document storage, and as a long-term communication tool. Instruction on any Google tool can be arranged at the library (630-617-3173).
