Google Docs

Google Docs is unlike anything you have used before. It is a document editor that can be converted back and forth with MS Office document formats. If you are wondering "What's the point of Google Docs?", ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you collaborate on documents with other people via email attachment or uploading/downloading to a network drive? Have you ever considered how much time and effort is wasted in this process?
  • How do you keep track of which is the most recent version?
  • How do you accommodate more than one person wanting to edit the document at once?

Google Docs solves this problem by having one online version of the document for everyone, while at the same time tracking all previous revisions of the document if recovery is needed. Now you can have the whole team editing a document simultaneously without any confusion, lost time or lost data.

Custom training is also available - email training@ualberta.ca for details.
