This workshop is designed for those individuals who are starting up a business and don’t have the resources to purchase other applications.

We will show you how to use your Google account in an effective manner to communicate and share documents, organize, search, and set permissions.

Topics covered include:


  • Collaborate on Google applications, (e.g., docs, slides, and sheets)
  • Communicate by making and resolving comments
  • Share or e-mail documents as attachments.
  • Create folders and upload files to Google Drive.
  • Share folders in Google Drive


  • Create a word processing document (e.g., business letter, report, and table)
  • Apply formatting features: fonts, paragraph styles, alignment, bullets/numbering, and line spacing.
  • Insert and move text and objects (e.g., images, links, headers, and page numbers)
  • Set permissions for sharing a document.
  • Use the research tool from within a document
