The calendar is also searchable in case you forget when a project is due.
If you click on Documents (or Drive), you have access to an online equivalent toMicrosoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint. These online programs allow you to work from anywhere you have a web browser and an internet connection. And if it is a group project, you can share and collaborate with classmates on the same document at the same time. When you are done, you can download the document into the corresponding Microsoft Office format. If you just need to transport a file to your home computer or share it with someone else, you can upload it to your account and retrieve it from anywhere. With 5 GB of free space for any non-Google formatted document, this is a great replacement for those Flash drives you keep losing, right?
