Hey! I’m KaMar.
I work on Applied Digital Skills, which uses videos to teach you how to create useful and
The videos show projects in G Suite, a free set of online applications that includes Docs,
Sheets, Slides, Drive, and more.
You can make projects in G Suite, or use other similar programs you have access to.
In this video, I’ll describe how Applied Digital Skills works and how to get started.
Applied Digital Skills includes free lessons on many themes and subjects.
To access lessons, sign in to the Applied Digital Skills website.
Once you sign in, you will see your dashboard.
From your dashboard you can: Go to a new lesson
View lessons assigned to you
Or, continue a lesson you began previously
To get started, select the lesson your teacher assigned.
Or, if you are working on your own, select a lesson that interests you.
Next, you will watch an introductory video that describes the lesson, the skills you
will use, and the project you’ll create.
At the end of the video, follow the steps described before moving on.
Watch the videos in one browser tab or window, and build your project in another tab or application window.
Then, click back and forth between them.
To view the video and your project at the same time, open them in separate windows.
Then, resize and move the windows so they both fit on your screen.
As you watch the videos, you can: Read instructions for building the project,
Change the video speed,
Read video transcripts or closed captions,
And, pause or rewind.
After you complete the steps in a video, move on to the next page.
As you build projects in G Suite, they are automatically saved while you work.
To access your projects, go to google.com,
and open Drive.
Then, search for the file name, or scroll through your files to look for it.
When you sign into Drive using your Google account, you can access your projects from
any computer or phone.
You can also use Google Drive to create projects outside of Applied Digital Skills.
After watching this video, follow your teacher’s instructions, or, if you are working on your
own, select and start a lesson.
