Course Description

ONLINE: Gmail is one of the most popular email services currently in use. But did you know there are many other Google apps available for free through Google Workspace? The first portion of the course covers Gmail basics along with advanced features to help keep your email organized. The second portion provides a practical introduction to several of the most useful Google apps: Google Drive (to organize and share files), the office apps Google Docs and Google Sheets (similar to Word and Excel) and Google Forms (handy for creating simple surveys). It also covers how to get the most out of Google Maps. Each class will be a mix of instructor lecture and demonstrations along with hands-on practice by students on their own computer. Students are encouraged to bring real-life tasks to class to which these apps could be applied. The course will especially benefit those who collaborate with family members, friends or volunteer organizations that do (or could) make use of these free Google tools. | Lecture + Q&A, Active Skill Learning.

Please note: Students can sign up for sessions on Gmail only, Section 2, or for the sessions on Gmail plus Google Workspace apps, Section 1. There is no option to only attend sessions on Workspace apps. It is highly recommended that students join Zoom either on two devices or on a device with a very large screen, in order to be able to view the instructor's shared screen while they follow along or practice using Gmail and other apps on their own computer.

Students should have a Windows or Mac computer and be familiar with using any popular web browser, though Chrome is preferred. Students must have a Google account and already use Gmail on a regular basis. It would be helpful if students also have experience using at least one office app: Microsoft Word or Excel, Apple Pages or Numbers. Each class session builds on prior sessions, so please plan to attend all sessions.
