Welcome!

This video offers some tips for using course materials and navigating G Suite.

You don't need to memorize these steps.

You can return to this page later if you’d like to review.

When you sign into this site, you’ll be directed to the last page you visited.

Use the dropdown at the top of the page to switch to a different activity or video.

In each activity, you’ll watch a video, then you’ll follow the steps summarized at the end of the video before moving on.

Use Closed Captions, or speed adjustments to tailor the videos to your needs.

While watching instructional videos, you’ll create and access files using Google Drive.

To open Google Drive, first open a new tab.

Then go to Google.com, and select Google Drive.

When you create a document, spreadsheet, or presentation, it’s saved in “My Drive” To create a new file, click “new.”

You can start a blank project or select a template.

Google applications automatically save while you’re working.

You can access your files from any computer and pick up where you left off.

To access a file someone shared with you, select “Shared with me.”

To do this, click, hold and drag the tab out of the current window.

Resize the window by placing the cursor on the edge of the window until it changes to a two-sided arrow.

Then click, hold, and drag the mouse until the window is the right size for you.

To close a tab, click the x.

If you accidentally close a tab, recover it by right clicking a tab and selecting “Reopen closed tab."

When you finish working, sign out of your Google account.

Click on your account information, and select “Sign out.”

When you’re ready to work again, you can sign in on any computer and pick up right where you left off.

With these tips in mind, enjoy creating with G Suite!
