Google Drawings

Let's Get Creative

One of the lesser known Google Apps is Google Drawing. Google Drawing is really powerful and easy to use! Use Google Drawing to make your posters and flyers. Like other Google Docs, Google Drawing is collaborative. This means you do not need to print out your flyer and walk across campus to get it approved. Simply share the Drawing with a colleague and let them make any changes that are needed. Google Drawing is always current. The drawings can be published to a website. Any changes made in the drawing will be updated in the embedded files. Here is a short tutorial to get you started.
