- Let's discuss the benefits of migrating your files…to Google Drive and using Google Docs.…This course assumes that you're currently using…the desktop version of Microsoft Office,…not the online Office 365 equivalent.…If you switch to a cloud environment such as Google Drive,…you'll find some great features…to help you work more efficiently,…especially with others.…These are things that you can't do…while working on an Office document on your own desktop.…For example, because your file already exists online,…you can publish that document to the web easily.…
This is great for college professors,…non-profit organizations and any group…or website that you maintain.…You can embed a document directly onto a website.…You can also collaborate in real time…with other people on a document.…If you're editing a Google Doc,…someone else who you have…given permission to access that document…can also be working on it at the same time as you.…You can see the changes that they're making…live as they happen,…and even see where their cursor is on the document.…
