DIRECTIONS FOR GETTING A GMAIL ACCOUNT:

   Go to http://www.google.com

         Click Gmail at the top

         Click Create an Account on the right (You must have a Google Account even if you have another email account.)

         Fill in the application.  Then click “I accept.  Create my account.”

         Memorize or write down your user name and password.

o        You can use your account to access our class blog and post comments at http://maddogsmith.blogspot.com/  [You can always post on the class blog as "Anonymous"]

o        You will also need your logon and password in order to use Google Docs (see below)

 

 DIRECTIONS FOR CREATING/USING GOOGLE DOCS:

         Once you have a Gmail account, sign in with your user name and password.  Then

        click Documents at the top of the page.  You can now work on documents from any  computer with the Internet. You do not have to worry about carrying a USB because it will be on Google Docs for as long as you want.

         I suggest you go to Welcome to Google Docs.  Click “Learn More” and read about the program. 

 

 [HINT:  After typing your document, go to FILE, go to DOWNLOAD AS, click WORD.  Then click FILE again and click SEND AS ATTACHMENT if you're sending it to someone.]
