Course Description

Anyone with a Gmail account has access to a variety of free Google tools! In this 5-week series, we’ll explore Drive, Slides, Sheets and Photos. These tools help you store files, stay organized, create presentations, and more. After an introductory lecture, each session will include hands-on practice using the tools, and you will also learn how these skills can transfer to other productivity software, such as Microsoft Office. Whether you are simply curious about Google tools, preparing for a job search or new employment—or both—this series is for you!
