Communication is so important when moving to cloud storage. Our Introduction to Communication Tools course covers signing into your Google Chrome browser, getting started with Gmail, using Google Chat, creating events with Google Calendar and having a meeting in Google Meet. We will also demonstrate a great task tool called Google Keep that helps you to keep track of many aspects of your life.

3 hour session

After the session, you will also get resources!

Course Notes

Following the session you will get access to a presentation with a series of screenshots of what was covered in the session.

These notes will be a great visual reminder as to what you covered and any top tips that may have been shared in the session!

In these course notes we have included links you will find helpful and other additional reference material which we find useful.

Video Series

Not only will you receive these notes but you will also get access to part of our new video product, a series of videos we created to help you master these tools.

These videos cover all you need to know to continue your learning and will help you to revise concepts covered in the session at your own pace with the ability to press pause or double the speed!

Top Tip

Due to the nature of our sessions, we recommend that you join the session with two screens or from two devices. That way, you can see your trainer as well as work in your drive at the same time. Alternatively, you could always split your screen. Watch this video to learn how to do just that if this is how you will be joining.
