Included in students' Zonemail accounts is access to Google Apps, a suite of online tools that allow you to create, share, store and collaborate on documents with others. As long as you are a registered student at Las Positas, you will have access to Google Apps.
Google Apps consists of Google Docs (word processing, spreadsheets, presentations), Google Sites (creating web sites), Google Calendar, Google Talk (chat), and Gmail, which is the same as your Zonemail.
Here are a few ways Google Apps can help you with your class work:
- You can work collaboratively with fellow group members to create a web site.
- You can collaborate on writing a group paper.
- You can share your group web site or paper with the rest of the class when it is finished.
- If you don't own Microsoft Office, you can save files in the Word, Excel, and PowerPoint formats to send to your instructor
