Google Workspace

What is it?

Tools to help multiple people work simultaneously on a single document or file to achieve a single final version.  Google Docs enables PLNU users - faculty, staff, and students - to collaborate more efficiently and effectively on papers, spreadsheets, and presentations.  There’s never a need to keep track of several versions of documents. The revision history features allows you to revert to previous versions of the document, if needed. This also encourages more accountability since each “collaborator” on the Google Doc can see exactly what they contributed. The auto-save feature ensures their work will never be lost.
