Placeholder Image

     Barton Community College’s Silver Cougar Club will offer a course on Google Drive from 1-4 p.m. Wednesdays, Jan. 14 through Feb. 18, at the Center for Adult Education, 1025 Main St. in Great Bend.
     Google is more than just a search engine and offers many different apps and services. Google Drive is Google’s “cloud storage” component. It was released in April of 2012 and is a free way to keep files backed up and easily accessible from any smart phone, tablet or computer. It is a unique file storage and synchronization system which offers users cloud storage, file sharing and collaborative editing.     

      This will be part one of a two-part course on Google Drive. This course will focus on documents and PowerPoint presentations. The second course will be in the spring and will focus on spreadsheets created via Excel.
     Barton’s Technical Support System Administrator Rich Unrein will be the instructor.
     Cost for the class is $32 for Silver Cougar Club members and $97 for non-members. The class is limited to 16. For more information or to enroll, contact Barton’s Coordinator of Fundraising & Special Events Coleen Cape at or 620-786-1136.
