Course Description

Google Docs is a word processing app that is Google's answer to Microsoft Word.  Because Google Docs can be accessed on any device for which you have Internet access, it makes it more convenient for users.   That said, Google Docs does not contain all the features that you would find in Microsoft Word.   Instead, it is a basic word processing program that leaves out the glam, but includes all the features you need to create professional documents.  

This course will teach you how to access and use Google Docs, starting with the basics before working its way into the more advanced features. It also includes instructions for setting up a Google account, as well as using Google Drive for saved files.

  • Create new documents from scratch, as well as from templates
  • Open existing documents from Google Docs, as well as other word processing programs
