Google Drive is the successor to Google Docs. It extends the capabilities of Google Docs to include the ability to sync files between your computer and Google's "cloud" (drive.google.com) and continues to provide an easy way to share files and collaborate on editing files.
Google Drive is the preferred method of off-site file storage and file sharing for Plymouth State University and it functions somewhat like Dropbox – by placing some or all of your files in this system, you can access them from anywhere and share them with anyone.
One note of caution however; we urge faculty and staff, to assess the impact of Federal privacy regulations (e.g., FERPA and HIPAA), Federal law, contractual obligations, and grant restrictions on their work before moving sensitive or proprietary University-related files and data into the PSU Google Drive environment.
