  • Hi Laura. For slide number 6 you have two ways to log in it seems. Can you please explain the difference between the 2? I can't see the second one fully, it almost seems like your school has a google app or google email account doc specifically for all faculty to collaborate/view google docs...or am I misunderstanding? Thanks!

  • Google Docs applications are more basic. Toolbars and button functions are similar and familiar
  • Show different invitation options Demonstrate different email accounts
  • Show different invitation options Demonstrate different email accounts While there is a limit to simultaneous editing, people can still view the document. 
  • Adding comments directly into the document your students are working on is a much more immediate feedback mechanism than submitting work and returning it.  The Revision History is a great feature that allows you to see who made certain changes, what they were, and when they were made.  Great for grading or evaluation quality and quantity of contributions in a group project.
