Google Docs

I know, you are wondering, "Google Docs, what are they, how can I use them, and how can they benefit me?" Well, check out this quick video to find out.

So, Google Docs lets you create documents, spreadsheets and presentations online. If that isn't cool enough by itself, you can also share or collaborate with those same documents. Which mean you can choose who can access your documents, share them instantly, and edit and present with others in real time. Good stuff!

Some other benefits of using Google Docs include the ability to edit and access your documents from anywhere, safely store your work, easily save and export copies, and organize your documents into folders. A fantastic feature, if you are a blogger, is that Google Docs lets you easily share documents by hyperlink with your readers. (More on this in my next post!)

Impressed? I was the first time I tried it out. The great thing about Google Docs is you can use it for free with your Gmail address and password or by creating a Google Account.

Because I love YouTube, here is a pretty good overview of Google Docs from a teacher in California.

For more information and specifics visit the Google Docs Web site. Now, go try out Google Docs and see how easy it is to use!
