Google Apps - Tips and Tricks

Introducing our New Google Apps Tips and Tricks course

Do you know that when you sign up for a Google account you get access to a variety of great apps? This course will get you started with an account (if you don’t already have one) and introduce you to some of the free applications that come with it.

  • Discover and explore using Google Earth, Maps and Lens
  • Organise your schedule and share events with others using Calendar
  • Organise and store all your photos
  • Discover, watch and share videos and music using YouTube
  • Connect with others using Gmail, Hangouts and Duo
  • Capture your thoughts as notes, lists and voice memos using Keep, then get a reminder later
  • Speak, scan, type or draw to translate in over 100 languages

You can learn all of this with the help of one of our friendly facilitators. For more information email cffsites@ara.ac.nz, or drop into one of our centres at New Brighton, Bishopdale, Hornby, Madras Street and Rangiora.
