      In this online meeting, I met with Lisa, Kathy, Helen and Melissa from Waiheke Primary. The agenda for the meeting was:

      1. How to upload files to Google Drive easily.
      2. How to convert files to Google Docs easily.
      3. File and folder naming protocols.
      4. Setting up internal filing systems for your cloud-based system.

      This video is approximately 1 hour 15 minutes long…

      If you click on the ‘Youtube’ icon bottom left of this video you’ll open it up in Youtube and then be able to see the description.

      Because this video is longer, you’ll want to do this so you can see the hyperlinked ‘chapter markers’ in the description, these enable you to navigate through the video easily.
