Google Docs

Google Docs is a suite of tools that allows you to create different kinds of documents, work on them simultaneously with other people, and access them from anywhere you have a computer and an Internet connection. Google Docs does not replace Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, etc.) on campus, but serves as a complementary toolset for document collaboration. Here is an overview of Google Docs.
