Easy PC Learning:


Lecturer, Dick Rayne from Birkbeck College would like to use Google Docs on the
 new Eee Pc's, for his Biology students.He is looking into ways for his students to
 complete their group work on the Eee PC laptops, as they are ideally small enough
for group lab work and light enough for outdoors fieldwork (using Google Docs
off-line).  
This project will be using the Spreadsheet and Google Gears (off-line)
applications in Google Docs.

Josh Underwood is involved in projects at the IOE, such as the VeSel Project and
 the e-Science Usability project, and has been using the basic tools in Google Docs
 for various projects, since 2006. Josh would like to explore Google Docs' advanced
features, to see if Google's latest collaborative tools can enhance his current projects
 through advanced online communication methods and techniques. 
He is particularly interested in the Spreadsheet graphs/widgets/gadgets,
as well as using Google Docs outside the office with hand held devices.
