Google Apps for Education (UTH-Share)

UTH-Share is UTHealth’s implementation of Google Apps for Education.

By using UTH-Share, individuals can work on documents and other content using multiple platforms and personal devices. Collaborative capabilities allow public sharing of information as well as secure, “trusted” interactions among individuals having Google identity credentials. Activities included are exchanging files and folders, real-time and/or asynchronous creation and editing of content, and maintenance of revision history.

This is a secure, global, collaborative environment that incorporates interacting applications and emerging “intelligent personal assistant” capabilities. These interactive services greatly enhance the ability of students, faculty, and staff to efficiently create, integrate, manage, discover and share a wide spectrum of digital content in a secure manner.

What You Get With UTH-Share

  • Google Drive lets you store and access your files anywhere — on the web, on your hard drive, or on the go.
  • Google Docs is an online word processor that lets you create and format text documents and collaborate with other people in real time.
  • Google Sheets is an online spreadsheet app that lets you create and format spreadsheets and simultaneously work with other people.
  • Google Slides is an online presentations app that allows you to show off your work in a visual way.
  • Google Groups allows you to create online and email-based groups where you can share and collaborate with others.
  • Google Sites is the easiest way to make information accessible to people who need quick, up-to-date access. People can work together on a Site to add file attachments, information from other Google applications (like Google Docs, Google Calendar, and YouTube), and new free-form content.

To get started with Google Apps, go to the UTH Share website and click on the "Sign up now link". Enter your UTHealth account username and password and click Login. You can also view the step-by-step instructions on How to Setup Your UTH-Share Account for additional assistance.
