Signing In

Many people already have a personal Google account. If you are one of them, don’t sweat it, as you may be logged into more then one Google account at a time. The only “trick” to keep in mind is that the first account you log in to on a given device will often be considered the “Default Account.” This is the account that will be used when doing things like clicking new links. If you want to change which account is the “Default,” simple sign out of all accounts and then sign in again, “Default” account first.

If you are using a Google service and would like to switch accounts, select your profile in the top right hand corner, and click the account you would like to start using. Often, this will open a new tab leaving your current work unaffected.

Docs & Drive

Google Docs & Drive is a great way to collaborate on shared documents, and share files of all types.

Everything is web based, which makes sharing and collaboration as simple as sending a link! However, keep in mind that by default, things will only be shared with other accounts. If you wish to share with others, feel free edit sharing permissions as necessary:
