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.
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"]
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.
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.]
