NEW! Google Suite Training Videos Chrome Extension

The Google Suite Training Videos Chrome Extension has been added to all staff Google Accounts. This extension is great and provides on the spot training for all of the Google Suite Apps (drive, docs, slides, sheets, sites, etc). Users can find it in the “more” section of the Waffle Menu. If you are signed into Chrome the icon (see below: the rainbow circle with a question mark inside) should also appear while working in any Google Suite App. This will provide on the spot help for that application!

Google seems to be updating the training regularly, and we have already learned new tricks by using it!
