Google Apps

Google Apps webinar is for beginners…It shows how to authenticate your Google Drive, transfer files from your H drive to Google Drive, and some cool things people have done with Google Apps. We encourage everyone to join the FCS Google course in itslearning. We will continue to populate the course through the year with more ideas and examples.

A new feature in Google Docs was recently announced, you can now dictate into a Google Doc! Make sure you have a microphone attached to your computer. Open a Google Doc and go to Tools > Voice Typing. Click on the microphone button to speak. Enable the microphone if it asks you to do so. Then just start talking! Say “period” at the end of a sentence. Say “new line” to go to the next line.
