DepEd Teachers: How to Save Your Files from Google Drive to OneDrive During the Migration to Microsoft
DepEd migrates to Microsoft, teachers save files from Google Drive
The Department of Education (DepEd) in the Philippines began migrating its services from Google to Microsoft on October 1, 2023. This move is part of DepEd’s plan to improve its digital infrastructure and provide its teachers and students with the best possible learning tools.
One of the key changes under the migration is the shift from Google Drive to Microsoft OneDrive as the default cloud storage service for DepEd users. This means that teachers will need to save their files from Google Drive to OneDrive before the end of the migration period.
There are a few different ways that teachers can save their files from Google Drive to OneDrive. One way is to use the Google Takeout tool. Google Takeout allows users to download a copy of their data from Google services, including Google Drive. To use Google Takeout, teachers can follow these steps:
- Go to the Google Takeout website.
- Select the Google products that you want to download, including Google Drive.
- Choose a file format for your download.
- Set a download schedule.
- Click “Create export.”
Once the export is complete, teachers can download the files to their computer and then upload them to OneDrive.
Another way to save files from Google Drive to OneDrive is to use the Google Drive desktop app. The Google Drive desktop app allows users to sync their Google Drive files with their computer. To use the Google Drive desktop app, teachers can follow these steps:
- Download and install the Google Drive desktop app.
- Open the Google Drive desktop app.
- Right-click on the files that you want to save and select “Copy to OneDrive.”
- Open OneDrive and paste the files into your desired folder.
Once the files have been pasted into OneDrive, they will be available to access from any device.
DepEd has provided teachers with a number of resources to help them with the migration process. These resources include a migration guide, a FAQ page, and a helpdesk. Teachers can also contact their school’s ICT coordinator for assistance.
The migration of DepEd services from Google to Microsoft is a major undertaking, but it is one that is necessary to improve the department’s digital infrastructure and provide its teachers and students with the best possible learning tools. By following the steps above, teachers can easily save their files from Google Drive to OneDrive and ensure that they are not disrupted by the migration process.
