Tool: Google Docs
Google Docs is a web-based application in which documents and spreadsheets can be created, edited and stored online for free. It is a convenient, cheap, and compatible method of creating and accessing files as they can be accessed from any computer with an internet connection, thus making collaboration a simple and efficient process.
Google Docs can be used to create and share docs, spreadsheets and presentations – individually or collaboratively. Google docs is part of a comprehensive package of online applications offered by and associated with Google that includes other applications such as google slides and google sheets. Google docs is compatible with most presentation and word processing applications and lends itself to collaborative projects in which there are multiple authors working from geographically diverse locations. Users have control over who sees their work and all participants who can subsequently see the document are privy to see who and when specific alterations were made. As a Mobile and Digital E-learning tool, Google Docs has three web apps, one that works offline and two other mobile apps for Android and iOS. These apps are compatible with Microsoft Office file formats. The Pricing for this tool varies. Users can get 15Gb of storage and all features for free or 1.70 euro/month for 100Gb storage, 9 euro/month for 1TB and up to 30TB for 260euro/month.
Google Docs enables you to create, share, back up and export a wide range of documents, spreadsheets, presentations, forms and drawings.
