    Paul Anning Spain A short course that offers a good introduction to Google Docs, but does not go into any depth. You will need to look elsewhere if you want to learn more about the applications offered by Google, however I would recommend that people watch these short videos as a quick intro. 2015-03-19 10:03:36

    Jessica Payne United States of America I wish the videos were more informative. Also having the ability to use full screen would have made it easier to remember and see what the person was doing. A slower tutorial would also help. I did learn from this though! 2015-03-02 01:03:15
