At Plymouth College of Art we use a host of technologies to support your learning and creative development. While you are with us, you will have access to a collection of Google productivity, collaboration and sharing tools collectively known as “G Suite”, but commonly referred to as “Google Apps”.

Below you will find links to tutorials and guides for our commonly used apps in the Google Suite. We recommend viewing the videos and reading the guides prior to your arrival as you will be using some of the programmes in your first few days with us.

We have included a link to a short Google Form for you to complete after you have been through the videos / guides - this will help ensure that you don't miss anything and inform of us any future content we need to produce.
