Tech Tips

Cloud Services – Google Drive

In order to protect information when using cloud services a District-wide directive has been established that the Google for Education suite of products (specifically Google Drive) is the official, approved, and authorized solution for cloud storage. All other cloud storage solutions (ex. Dropbox, Box, OneDrive, etc.) will not be authorized for official MCCCD use. Those using cloud service solutions other than Google Drive have until June 30, 2016 to migrate to Google Drive. Please click here for information on how to use Google Drive.
