Free tutorial on Google Docs

Atomic Learning is giving a free tutorial on Google Docs. I LOVE Google Docs but also have a growing affinity for Zoho Writer. For collaborating real time, however, Google Docs is still the best (I've tested it extensively with my students.)

Pass this along to your teachers!

And there’s Adobe’s Buzzword (http://www.buzzword.com/), a Flash-based online word processor. It has a very slick interface, although the response is a little slower than Google Docs or Zoho Writer.

They’re calling it a “preview” edition but it’s free and rumor is that they will later add a spreadsheet and presentation maker.

Isn’t it nice that we have all this competition in online office tools. Unlike the off-line versions. :-)

For a Google Docs intro, I prefer the Common Craft video.

Great resource. Do you have a tutorial of some kind of getting around the whole username/password thing for students while using it within the classroom?
