Google for the Office

Create and edit documents, spreadsheets, forms and slides using Google products.

This course will introduce you to Google’s range of apps that provide a powerful free alternative to Microsoft Office tools like Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Google files are web-based, so you can access them from anywhere, using any device. You can also share your files, meaning multiple users can work on the same file. Whether you’re a novice or an expert looking for a better way to collaborate, this course will help you create, share and manage your documents. You’ll set up a Google account and then learn all you need to know to start using Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides and Forms, including how to use Forms to collect and analyse data.
