Google Docs

Using Google Docs is a series of two digital knowledge programs that explore the many free resources available from Google, including Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Drive, Google Docs, Google Sites, and Google’s mobile applications.  We produced these courses for VuKnowledge Media for an audience of middle school and high school students in disadvantaged learning environments who are not familiar with the features and benefits of Google’s online software.  The courses introduce users to Google Gmail for sending and receiving emails; Google Calendar for scheduling; Google Drive for cloud storage of files; Google Docs for word processing, spreadsheets, and presentations; Google Sites for creating web sites; and Google’s mobile applications for accessing these resources on your phone or tablet. The courses feature software demonstrations and hands-on practice sessions using simulated Google software.  The courses also feature activity guides for practice sessions using live Google software.

Videologies provided audience analysis and course design services,  storyboarding,  audio production, video editing,  graphics design, photography,  and course programming.  The courses were developed using Adobe Captivate for the practice simulations and Articulate Studio for final publishing.  The development time was approximately six weeks.   The finished courses provide approximately 5 hours of student activity time.
