Google Docs & Spreadsheets


I’ve been promoting skills in Microsoft Office for the last 10 years and I am mightily impressed with Microsoft’s new version of Office (2007) as well as Vista. I like the new capabilities within Office. Particularly the collaboration tools and the search functions.

However, I am gradually becoming enamored with Google’s ‘Docs & Spreadsheets.’ Although they don’t have some of the sophistications of Office, they are certainly very easy to use and brilliant for collaborating on documents with other people. http://www.google.com/a/ I have written a document today which I shared with three other people so they can contribute to it. It was a doddle and I don’t have to have my laptop with me to update it. Wonderful.

Combined with the cool features of iGoogle I am starting to use more and more of the Google tools. I think they will save anyone both time and money who needs some straightforward applications which they can use anywhere where they can access the Internet.

    I am loving this too. Do you know of any documentation that we could adapt for training? I’d love to get my faculty started with this asap.

    thanks!
