Google has a free suite of office programs including a Word Processor called Docs, spreadsheets package called Sheets and slideshow presentation software called Slides. In this beginners course, we will go through the basics of how to access these apps with your Gmail account – for free.

This course is based on a series of workshops that are held regularly at The Horsham Community House and is a series of 10 face to face workshops that can be attended separately or included with our Digital Literacy Skills (Basic Computers).

Divided up into 12 sessions, we will cover the basics of the major apps within the Google Office (free version) including accessing the Drive Cloud Storage, Docs Word Process, Sheets Spreadsheets Package and Slides the alternative to PowerPoint.
