1. Introduction to Google Workspace: Gmail

Playback Speed:

With Gmail, Google’s cloud-based email program, you can send and receive messages with family, friends, and colleagues across the world.

You can also share files and images, personalize your settings, and search your inbox for past messages.

Because Gmail is in the cloud, you can access it anytime, from any computer or device with an internet connection.

Later in the lesson, you’ll learn how to use Gmail when you’re offline, too.

This lesson uses example emails that are sent between members of a community center fundraising group.

But you can use Gmail for any function, whether it’s work related or personal.

To begin, sign in to your Google account.

Open a new tab in your browser, and navigate to google.com If you are not signed in, do so now.

If you do not have a Google account, pause the video and create one now.

Next, use the Google Apps menu to access the Mail app.


  1. Sign into your Google account or create one now.
  2. Open Gmail.
