Google allows you to create collaborative documents, spreadsheets, drawings, forms, and presentations.
Once you are inside of Google Mail, click on Documents in top menu bar.
Once you are in the Document area of your Google account, click on the Create new and select the type of document you would like.
Any documents you create can be exported and saved as Microsoft Office files.
You can also import your Microsoft Office documents into Google documents.
What are some advantages beyond Microsoft Office?
- You can collaborate with others on shared documents
- The documents are available anywhere you can find a browser (Excellent for presentations where there is a web connection.)
- You can create a "web page" with information that can be viewed by anyone on the Web (publicity and news releases) or by only a few. For example, agenda notes for a committee.
