Google Drive Tutorial 2014

This Google Docs / Google Drive tutorial for 2014 serves as a quick start guide to Google Drive and Google Docs for users that are looking for a quick crash course to get up and running with Google Drive in 2014.

Google Drive is a file sharing, document creating and group collaboration platform that allows users to create, share and store documents and files in cloud environment for easy access and control.

Files stored in Google Drive are accessible from any computer with an internet connection. Files can be shared with multiple users and if one user is editing a file in Google Drive, others users with the file open will see the document changes in real time. In other words, you can watch someone edit a document as they type from the other side of the world.
