Google Docs

Quite a new of us in the school system now have blogs. At some point, you will have a document or a PowerPoint presentation that you want to share with your students or the whole world (which on the Internet is really the same thing).

Problem: How can I post a document somewhere?

Answer: Google Docs

Google Docs is a free service which allows you to upload Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, and PowerPoint presentations. You can allow others to view them. You can allow selected other people to even change them. Click here to view an outstanding video which explains the concept and will help you get started.

Our system for Maintenance Requests is an example of Google Docs at work. Any principal has the ability to add a request directly on the spreadsheet and can do so from any computer in the world provided tere is Internet access. Any employee can view all of the requests, when they were make, and when they were completed by clicking the link on the right-hand side of the screen.
