What will I learn?

Google Docs is the hugely popular word processor (what a retro word!) from Google and dominant force in G Suite. Does it replace Microsoft Word feature for feature? No, and it doesn’t need to. Docs offer a very comprehensive set of tools suitable for nearly 95% of all those needing to word process. However, it is all the other things that Docs can do that set it apart from the competition, like voice typing and the brilliant Explore tool. If you are a Google school using G Suite, then this Learning Trunk is essential so that you can get the most out of the growing apps.

What are you going to learn about?

You’ll learn about how to find your way around Docs and how to save time and effort when working with things like images and search in lessons. You’ll also see how to bring the power of the web into document creation.
