Web Collaboration Tools
In the last few years the Web has introduced a whole new set of business tools that encourage collaboration on a level never experienced before.
One of the most useful is the suite that Google has put together.
This presentation will show you how use some of these collaborative tools.
Keep in mind that these applications are constantly evolving. The screen shots shown in this tutorial were taken March 2012 and may look different from what you encounter. Be flexible. All of these applications are designed for the average computer user.
Here's what we plan to accomplish:
- Set up a Gmail account
- A quick overview of Google Calendar
- Using Google Docs
- Sharing Google Docs, Spreadsheets, Forms, Drawings
- Using Google Forms for surveys
- Templates (to help you stand on the shoulders of others)
- Using Google Alerts
For this tutorial you will need a gmail address. This will allow you to verify and validate your registrations no matter where you are doing this tutorial.
We will start by setting up a Gmail account.
