Let's Collaborate!

Now that you have the basic skills down, lets start collaborating with Google Docs. After all, that is what this is all about, huh?

We are going to begin our collaborative experience by all working on a single Google Document together.

Click to open the Google Document called "Let's Write Together."

As you work on this document, here are some things to consider:

How do you know who is working on the document?

Is there a way to tell who is typing? who made changes?

What if someone destroys a section?

Where could this type of collaboration work best?


Now that you've experienced collaboration, let's learn how to create your own shared documents. I like to begin this process with a solid understanding of exactly WHAT it means to share within the Google Apps world. This video is the best I've seen.
