Nursing Students - Getting Started in Google Sites and Drive - Step 2

You will locate your Nursing Portfolio through your College email account. You will be using Google Sites for your portfolio and Google Drive for your portfolio documents.

Google Sites is a structured Web page-creation tool offered by Google. Google Drive is a location where content is stored, similar to a filing cabinet, with the ability to create, upload, share, and collaborate with others.

The directions below will show you how to change the permissions for your Nursing portfolio documents folder so that your instructors and potential employers may view your documents.

 

STEP 1: Accessing Google and Adding Documents to Google Drive

STEP 2: Changing Sharing Permissions on your Folder in Google Drive

STEP 3: Creating your Portfolio Site and Adding Documents

STEP 4: Sharing your Portfolio Site

 

 

STEP 2: Changing Sharing Permissions on your Folder in Google Drive

 

1. Go to the College website at www.mc3.edu 

 

2. Login to the portal using your College username and password.
