Do you find it difficult to design and format professional documents or struggle to create electronic materials from scratch? Unless you’ve been taught how to properly format letters, presentations, spreadsheets and the like, it can often be challenging to know where to begin with creating such items. Fortunately, with a little help from Google, we can design unique, eye-catching, and functional materials with ease. Google is a cloud-based tool ideal for designing personal and professional documents for use with colleagues, friends, family, or even just for yourself. A standard Google account provides access to templates within Docs, Sheets, Slides and more, allowing quick document creation without having to start with a blank slate. Upon completing this project, you will be able to find, create and practice using templates within Google Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms . Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
Anyone seeking to learn more about designing electronic documents (whether for personal or professional use) will benefit from this project.
