Getting started with Google Drive

It is important for you to set up your Google Drive correctly. Therefore you will need to do the following:

  • Use the Chrome browser, as Safari, Firefox and Internet Explorer sometimes have problems rendering the pages
  • Create a folder for each of your subjects
  • Create a sub-folder for each subject that will be shared between you and your subject teachers
  • Organize your folders so that they are easily accessible (your teacher will need to create a "Class Share" folder for you to complete this step)
To help you do this please use the following step by step guides:
