The class is an introduction to Google Apps (Docs, Sheets and Forms) and Google Drive, the online storage location for Google Docs. In this two-hour workshop, you’ll learn how to set up a local Google Drive folder, which automatically synchronizes with Google Drive on the Web. You’ll learn to create new documents in the Google Docs format, as well as how to work with Word documents in Google Docs. You'll learn basic editing and formatting techniques in both Docs and Sheets, and also how to work with Excel files in Sheets. Finally, you'll learn to create a new form in Google Forms that automatically tabulates form data in a Google Sheet. Since the Google Apps are collaboration tools, the class will also cover sharing files and real time co-authoring. You’ll learn the difference between viewing and editing, and how to set permission levels for collaborators. Participants are encouraged to bring laptops and follow along with the instructor, but this is not required.
