INSTRUCTIONS: Setup your Google Drive for communication and collaboration with me and your group members. All class work should be submitted through the shared Google Drive Folder with the following standard naming convention: spring2016-bus110-firstname-lastname. All submissions should be inside the folder.
Step 1: Sign in to your LIU Email
Step 2: Locate the icon highlighted in yellow and click on it:
Step 3: Select Google Drive
Step 4: Create a high level folder name spring2016-bus110-firstname-lastname (substitute your own first name and last name in the label of your folder)
Step 5: Share your folder with me by using my Gmail email address: firstname.lastname@example.org; this will not work if you use my LIU email address.
The sharing options and the collaboration opportunities with your group members will be discussed in depth; see below:
You can share a file or folder in Google Drive or in the Docs, Sheets, and Slides.

Share lots of files at once
If you want to share multiple files at once, add the files to a folder in Drive and then share the entire folder with the people you want to see the files.
