Google Doc’s collaborative document working environment (compatible with Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint) allows you to work, store, organize, search, and quite conveniently, share documents without the complications of emailing several document versions back and forth between collaborators. With flexible sharing and permission options to match the collaborative environment or task of your choice, features such as sticky note-like comments and display of real-time text status markers can make it feel like you are working side-by-side with other collaborators, even though they are afar.
Come explore how to use Google Docs for sharing and collaboratively working in ways that improve your ability to connect, collaborate, organize, and manage your creative and collaborative efforts. This session will specifically focus on: Sharing options ( What they mean, and how they allow people to participate), Key collaborative features, Key ways CoPs can share via Google docs, Forms/spreadsheets options (helpful for surveying group needs, getting group input), Content management solutions (tracking article/faq needs, project milestones/timelines, managing hyperlinks in content), Collaborative brainstorming/writing
