    • Google EasePart I
      Making the most of Google’s
      online resources
      By Sara Dagen
    • Google mail
      Your first step to “Google Ease” is to sign up for a gmail account.
      Go to to get it.
    • Google mail
      Sign up for an account and write down the information your email address and password.
      You’ll definitely need the information often while using Google’s tools.
    • Google mail
      You’ll be able to create a theme and do many other cool things with your mailbox.
      But that’s not what this slide show is about. So do that later.
      Check out the choices at the top left of your mailbox page.
    • Moving on in Google mail
      The first thing you need to do is explore Google Docs.
      Click on Documentson the top left of the page.
    • This page is what you’ll see when you click on Documents from the gmail page.
    • Google Docs
      Google Docs allows you to upload your documents and create documents online.
      You can also share those documents as documents or share them as a webpage.
      You can invite collaborators or viewers or simply keep your files private.
    • Upload a file to Google Docs
      Click on Upload.
    • This is what you’ll see next.
    • Search your computer for the file you want or find the file on the web. Rename it or not. Then upload.
    • Upload a file to Google Docs
      Choose a file from your computer or from a website.
      Rename it, if you’d like.
      Click Upload to upload file.
    • This is what pops up when you click Upload. Of course, it won’t be this file of mine… I hope.
    • Upload a file to Google Docs
      Your file will open up in the window.
      Click on Save and Close(top right), if you’re ready to move on.
      If you’d rather share your document, click on Share (top right).
    • Share and share alike
      Click on Share with others.
      Choose to make your “share-ee” a collaborator or viewer.
      Click Invite Collaborators or Invite Viewers.
    • You’ll get this box next and can type a personal message to your collaborator or viewer.
    • Shared and shared alike
      Now that you’ve shared your file, you can simply click on Save and Close.
      But you could also click on Publish as web page, if you’d like to do so.
    • When you click on Publish as a web page, you’ll get this page.
      Click Publish document.
    • Now this page, lovely as it is, is a webpage with a web address all its own. When I update the page, it automatically updates the webpage.
    • Create a file within Google Docs
      You can also create a variety of documents from scratch using Docs.
      You can even create tests or surveys through Docs plus use templates to make it even simpler.
      Whatever you create can be saved, shared, and linked to through other Docs or even Google Sites. (Check out Part 2.)
