If you don't already know, Google Docs is a way to create and save text documents, presentations, forms, spreadsheets, and drawings, all in the "the cloud". This means that you never have to worry about losing your work if your computer crashes or stops working. It is always on the web (which I am sure is going nowhere soon) and accessible by logging into your Google account. Today I will talk about some ways to take advantage of the best parts of Google Docs.
- Use folders. These are called "collections". This ensures that if you have lots of work saved on Google Docs, you can organize and find it very easily.
- Upload documents. If you have important files stored on the hard drive of your computer, you can upload and save it to Google Docs for safekeeping and future reference. You can also edit it.
- Collaborate. You can share your documents with coworkers, family, and friends, and also let them edit it. This can be useful for documents that may need to be updated more than once (i.e. trip itinerary). If you invite others to view and edit your file, the changes are automatically updated and will be there the next time you log in. I personally think the best part of this is that you can make changes with others live in a document. All you need to do is invite someone to work with, and if they are online and viewing the document at the same time you are, their name will show up to the right of the document and then you can chat with them and make live changes!
