Some of the best things in life are free! This session is an overview of the free Google Docs cloud-based office suite of online software applications which can be used on their own and inside Canvas too. They’re great for collaborating with co-workers in real time (no more swapping files or tracking changes) or sharing a presentation with students.
Check out this example of a Google Doc embedded into a Canvas Page, or take a look at this Google Presentation embedded on a Canvas Page to get a sense of how you could use Google Docs for teaching.
