In a split-screen video, your instructor guides you step-by-step
An excellent introduction to basic uses for Google Docs. The instruction is clear and seeing someone make the same project on the same screen makes it very easy to follow.
Very informative, but too short. I would have liked to go a little more in-depth, even for an intro level class. I will look for further instruction on Coursera.
This is the best course for beginners in Google Docs. This course can also help with a few tips for people who are already using Google Documentations.
