Share instantly.
Anyone you've invited to either edit or view your document, spreadsheet or presentation can access it as soon as they sign in.

Edit and present with others in real time.
Multiple people can view and make changes at the same time. There's an on-screen chat window for spreadsheets, and document revisions show you exactly who changed what, and when.

Google Docs known Issues

IF students have any problems with google docs feel free in their breaks  to ask Mavish about help.

Images with dimensions greater than 2000 pixels cannot be uploaded.
We're aware of this issue. In the meantime, one workaround is to resize 

More than one form editing window open over writes changes saved
We're aware of a problem that occurs when someone has more than one form editing window open for the same form. The workaround to avoid edits from one form editing window overwriting edits from another is to ensure that you only have one form editing window open. This is the window that opens when you select Form > Edit form.

For more help ask Mavish. :)
