Google Docs

Have I mentioned that I’m a Google Docs proponent? I’ve tried a few of the others, e.g., Microsoft Office SkyDrive and Zoho and for my and my students use, Google Docs just works. The applications are not nearly as robust as desktop versions of office suites, yet they are more than adequate for most of us. Assuming few changes over the next six or so months, I plan to migrate our school to Google Apps next summer. I find that the three most valuable features of  Google Docs are 1) the cost (free); 2) access from any computer with Internet access; and document collaboration.

If you’re new to Google Docs and are interested in getting starting, you might want to view the video tutorials at http://googledocs.blogspot.com/2010/09/learn-about-google-docs.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+GoogleAppsBlog+%28The+Google+Apps+Blog%29.
