This course will cover the use of Google Docs, Sharing files, Google Sheets, and Google Slides. Students will need a (free) Gmail account to participate in this class. The first night covers Docs & Sharing Files: How to navigate the Doc toolbar, design, save and recall your documents, all geared to optimal organization and communication, plus Sharing Files: what the options are for sharing of documents as well as good protocol for sharing. We will cover how you and your team (of 2 to 100) can all work from one document. Google Sheets (the spreadsheet piece in Google Drive) and Google Slides (the feature that allows users to make slideshows for presentations) will be covered in the second class. We will cover the basics as well as copyright permissions; as time permits, other advanced features will be covered.
Do you want to write? With a little help, you can! In 6 weeks, you’ll produce many short pieces you have yet to imagine: no excuses, no inner dialogue, no internal editor, no rationalizations. One day prior to class, you will receive a prompt: a word, image, or phrase. You will draft a piece based on the prompt and join your fellow writers to share what you’ve written. Trust the process. Be amazed. You and your classmates have wondrous stories to tell when prompted.
