Intro to Google Docs

Docs is Google’s answer to those other office suites. Unlike the word processors from days of yore, Google Docs exists in the cloud so all of your files are accessible from anywhere, at anytime, from any computer or mobile device. Create presentations, spreadsheets, documents, drawings, and forms from the comfort of your favorite browser. Best of all, Google Docs is collaborative, providing a variety of ways to share your creation; even in real time! See what all of the buzz is about, and give Google Docs a chance to change the way you work forever.

Session Time:  10:00 a.m.-11:45 a.m.
