Google Drive has all the features that make it a very powerful productivity suite for teachers. Besides being able to create documents, slides, drawings and spreadsheets , users can also upload their own PDFs and files and sync them with their Google Drive accounts across different devices.
Another good thing about Google Drive which I mentioned yesterday in " File Sharing Tools I recommend for Teachers" is that it is web based and can also work offline. This is probably what distinguished this service from other powerful tools like Dropbox and Evernote.
With Google Drive installed on your computer or tablet, you can access your downloaded docs and work on them the way you want and once connected to internet you can then sync them to the cloud. Needless to mention the recent upgrade Google releases and which increased the free storage capacity to 15 GB .
