Understanding Google Apps
Straightforward online collaborative tools for researchers
90 mins (+ optional 30 min ‘surgery’)
This training workshop will introduce you to some of Google’s collaborative applications that may be useful in your research and teaching. Many of them replicate familiar applications that you already use on your PC, such as word processing, spreadsheets, slide presentations and calendars. All of Google’s applications are used through a web browser and can therefore be accessed from any computer.
In addition, the applications have a number of collaborative features which makes working with others quite easy.
