Google Drive for desktop is an application that lets you stream My Drive and Shared drive files directly from the cloud, which allows quick access to all your Google Drive files on demand directly from your computer. This quick access makes it easy to add content from your WIU Google Drive account to your eAcademy course.

NOTE: If you're unable to install Google Drive for desktop on your computer, then you'll need to use an embed code to insert copyright-free images and your own files and audio/video recordings into your course.

Log into your WIU Google Drive account at https://drive.google.com.

From the top right menu bar, click the Settings icon (gear icon) and then click Get Drive for desktop.

Click Download Drive for desktop. Open the downloaded, executable file on your computer and follow the on-screen instructions.

Once Google Drive for desktop is installed on your computer, you'll have a drive mapped to all your My Drive and Shared drive files.
