Good Morning: Recently you received a message from Karen Mathys regarding the upcoming Google Apps trainings. The message is copied below with the current dates and locations of the trainings. While this is an optional training, I would encourage your particpation at a date and location that is convenient to your schedule and location.
I am pleased to invite you to attend a hands-on Google Docs and Google Sites workshop. This 3.5 hour hands-on workshop provides a tour of the applications available within the University's Google Apps environment. This workshop will demonstrate how easy it is to collaborate on a project with different people, and how the Google Docs applications are designed to facilitate this goal. We will also use Google Sites to create a collaborative place to share documents, task lists, discussions, announcements and show you how to control who has access to the site. This is the same workshop that is regularly offered by the University Technology Training Center on the Twin Cities campus. As a prerequisite, you should be familiar with Gmail and Google Calendar. All Extension employees are invited to attend.
• collaboratively authoring documents with Google Docs
• using Google forms to gather information
• chatting with individuals and groups while editing documents together
• using a website in Google Sites to organize a collaborative project
