  4. 4. Why Google? The KISS principle states that most systems work best if they are kept simple rather than made complicated; therefore simplicity should be a key goal in design and unnecessary complexity should be avoided. Google cloud computing platforms have mastered of this concept. This means that your business, like McDonald's, can be run by teenagers lowering the cost of employee salaries and increasing profitability. We will review some key components of your business including forms, documents, spreadsheets, presentations that can utilize the KISS Concept with Google Applications.
  5. 5. Google Applications
  6. 6. Google Forms! ● Google Forms can be connected to spreadsheets in Google Sheets. If a spreadsheet is linked to the form, responses will automatically be sent to the spreadsheet. Otherwise, users can view them on the “Summary of Responses” page accessible from the Responses menu. ● You can make a form from your Drive,which was formally called Docs, or from any existing spreadsheet. ● You can plan events, make a survey or poll, give students a quiz, or collect other information in an easy, streamlined way with Google Forms.
  7. 7. Google Forms part 2 ● Demo from Google - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEY10Ub-k-U ● Demo from Wiki - http://www.wikihow.com/Create-a-Form- Using-Google-Drive ● News - http://techcrunch.com/2014/09/02/google-forms-now-less- ugly-thanks-to-addition-of-themes/ ● Uses - subscription to email lists via the web, surveys, applications (intake, room reservations, etc.)
  8. 8. Google Docs Google offers Google Docs as a free alternative to Microsoft Word. The zero-dollar price tag for Docs gives it a leg up on Word, and Docs is compatible with Word documents. Docs runs completely from the Internet, which causes some limitations to file availability but also provides a way to save a constant stream of revisions so you never lose your work. ● Disadvantage - lacks some features, such as support for multiple columns. ● Advantage - Built for collaboration sharable with Administrative rights ● Advantage - No Cost ● Advantage - Suite Integration with other Google Products ● Demo - https://www.google.com/campaigns/gonegoogle/demos.html

  11. 11. Google Presentations ● Due to being a free web app, Google Presentations isn't as full featured as desktop apps like Microsoft PowerPoint and Keynote. However, it makes up for a lack of aesthetic features by boasting very strong collaboration features. ● The learning curve for Google Presentations also much lower than that of a full-featured desktop app due to the fact that it hosts the most essential of features and gets rid of most of the fluff. ● Wiki Demo - http://www.wikihow.com/Create-a-Presentation-Using- Google-Drive ● Documentation - https://docs.google.com/document/d/1pEOAamcYDstEbl1yEhIN74RbYhY OA_fQ8lAc77y_0u8/edit

  13. 13. Google Voice For its 3.5 million daily users Google Voice is a big deal. Many have literally become associated with their 10-digit Google Voice numbers and addicted to the service’s once cutting-edge features. ● Google Voice gives you one number for all your phones ● Google Voice isn't a phone service, but it lets you manage all of your phones. ● Google Voice will let you define which phones ring Google Voice Demo (2 minutes long) https://support.google.com/voice/answer/115061?hl=en
