Google docs allows you to create a document that all participants can change, alter, delete, edit, ect. It also allows you to use Goggle spreadsheets and other software while you are using Google docs. No more having to write something out on a piece of paper and wait for a reply. With Google Docs you create an account, create a document, and send an invite to the other participants. Once those participants have logged in, they can now change and edit the document that you created. You can even do it simultaneously!

- 6. Slide 6 NarrationN: (normal voice) Google documents offers many benefits. To begin, Google documents is a free program to use. All the user needs to sign up is a gmail account, which is quick, easy, and also free. One major benefit is that the user is able to access their documents from any computer with an internet connection. This eliminates the need to carry a laptop, flash drive or external hard drive. The program does not require software downloads or installations. The program also allows the user to save their documents in a secure online storage facility and doesnt bog down the computers storage space. This also means that if your computer were to crash, your documents wouldnt be lost! The storage space allotted to each user is equal to about 100 pages. Google Docs enables multiple people in different locations to collaborate simultaneously on the same doc from any computer with internet access. Often, people email their documents for others to review, wait for them to reply and then make the necessary changes. Simultaneous collaboration cuts down the wait and work time. There is no longer a need to go back and forth, comparing and consolidating information. Google Documents is also user-friendly. It has similar capabilities offered by popular word processing programs like Microsoft Word. Most users dont have to spend a ton of extra time learning about the program before creating a Google doc. The next slides will demonstrate some of the similarities between Google Documents and Microsoft Word. The purpose is to show that if one knows how to create a document in Word, they will have no problem creating a similar document in Google Docs.
