Google Docs: The Basics

Start using Google Docs to create, share and collaborate!

Why should I attend?

Wonder what all the talk about Google Docs is? Know Google Docs exists but don't really know what it is or how to use it? Or maybe you've wanted to start using Google Docs but don't know how. Then this session is for you!

What will I learn?

You will learn how to:


  • Create a Google Document
  • Edit and format documents
  • Insert images, tables and links into documents
  • Share documents with others
  • Comment and collaborate on documents

Okay, you convinced me! When and where?

This training session is scheduled for the first half of each planning period (1A, 2A, 3A, and 4A) on Monday, March 11, 2013. (It is only half the period because your time is valuable!)


The session will be in the Opportunity Room (Room 250) in the Main Building.

What else do I need to know?

  • If you attend, please bring your laptop - we will be practicing what we learn, and Google Docs does not perform quite the same on an iPad.
  • Heather will be available after each session in case you have questions or want to know more.
  • More Google training sessions will be coming soon! Look for upcoming sessions on Google forms, Gmail and calendars, and possibly Google Docs advanced.
  • Have ideas for other session topics? Email Heather and let her know!
