Join Aaron Quigley for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Google Apps for Students.
This course will take an in-depth look at the Google applications all through the eyes of a student. This course is for you, if your institution or school uses Google apps for education. If your school is giving you access to Google suite of applications, with a specific username, this course is very specific to how you will access the Google applications. Also, if you have a regular Gmail account and you'd like to learn how the rest of the Google suite can be used for your school, then please feel free to follow along. There are some slight differences in the navigation menus if you have a regular Gmail login. I will try my best to point these differences out so you can still follow along with the rest of the course.
If you're also new to the Google suite of applications, and you just want to explore them, to understand what they are and how they can benefit you, then this course can give you a quick peek into what the Google applications can do for you as a student. Also, if you're a teacher wanting to instruct students on how to use Google applications, then this course can give you tips and tricks that you can take into the classroom and work into your own instruction. Prior to watching this course, I'll have the assumption that you know the basics of email and what Google applications at least are. That you should also comfortable with typing and word-processing. And that you need to have access to Google to follow along, whether through a gmail account or through a Google Apps for Education account.
Also, at any time, if you need to refresh your skills, lynda.com offers essential trainings for all of the Google applications. So you can dive more in depth into a specific application such as gmail, drive or sites
