What can you do with Google Docs?

Upload Existing Documents
Use Google Docs to save MS Word documents online. This is much easier to manage than unreliable floppy disks.

Create New Documents
Create a Document from scratch. Google Docs is a simple, no-frills word processor, that keeps all your work together online.

Work Together Online
Collaborate with another user to edit your documents online. This is a much easier than emailing attachments back and forth. You will see changes instantly. Then, you can undo their multiple grammar errors.

Email Documents Instantly
Email your document from within the program; no need to open up a separate Email program or create an attachment.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it:
1. Navigate to Google Docs.
2. Create a Google account or login to your existing Google account.
3. Open a new Document. Write your prediction for baseball’s next World Series.
4. Email it to yourself or a friend.
5. Take the survey.
