Creating a Google Doc

Today we are going to learn how to create a document with our
Google Apps for Education accounts!

Google Drive is the location where you will begin using the office suite applications in Google Apps. In Google Drive, you will find an easy-to-use word processor to create and edit written documents.

To create a document in your Google Drive account:
  1. Log in in to your Google Apps account from the Spurgeon web site so that you access your SAUSD Google account not another Google (gmail) account.
  2. Click on your 2013-2014 school year folder.
  3. Click the red "Create" button on the left side of your Drive account.
  4. Drop down to and click on "Document".
  5. Click on "Untitled Document" and type in the box to rename your document.
  6. Compose and edit your document as with any word processing software.
  7. Google Docs are automatically saved.
Let's practice by creating and editing a new document!
