real time. All faculty, staff, and enrolled students have
Google Apps accounts. Visit http://docs.google.com and use your

the web, on your hard drive, or on the go. All Google Apps accounts

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.
Google Hangouts (formerly Google Talk) offers the ability to
conduct one-on-one conversations and group conversations with
photos and video calls, allowing you to connect with people across
computers, Android, and Apple devices. Learn more about how to get
started with Google Hangouts in the FAQ.
