Collaborating with Google Team Drives

Google Team Drives has recently become available as an option for sharing files and folders. With Team Drives, documents are owned by a team instead of an individual. This means that when someone leaves the group, their files remain in the Team Drive without having to transfer ownership. Our Extension Technology team has moved to Team Drives which makes finding shared documents and folders so much easier! We also no longer need to transfer document ownership to a departmental account. We all have access to create folders and manage files within our Team Drive.

You’re invited: Join Extension T.E.C.C.!


Over the past year, I’ve heard from a variety of people across the organization that they’d love to hear how others are using technology in their Extension education work. So we’ve created a space to do just that!

Extension T.E.C.C., Technology in Education Coffee with Colleagues, is a new, informal network of U of MN Extension professionals working in technology-enhanced education, online learning, and hybrid/blended teaching. The goal is to build cross-center connections that allow for the sharing of information and ideas. It’s a safe place to share your interests and frustrations. Get inspired, or offer a suggestion.

Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy an informal check-in with your colleagues exploring Ed Tech opportunities during our six gatherings a year beginning August 1, 2016. Volunteer to share about your work (the successes AND challenges) and suggest topics you’re interested in learning more about. Attend in-person when you’re on campus or remotely when you’re not. Between meetings, post an update or question in the Google+ community. Learn more at z.umn.edu/exttecc.

    1. Julie I just clicked on the link from the article and it came up for me .... I wonder why it didn't work for you -- does it work if you type it?
