Google Apps Training provides enterprise quality end-user training that effectively develops the skills to use the full functionality of Gmail, Calendar, Docs, and Sites. Each lesson has a consistent instructional design that introduces a skill, explains the benefit, and demonstrates how to perform the skill, then reviews the lesson that was just presented.
Our training is enterprise quality, not quickly dressed up YouTube videos. In addition, Google Apps Training includes extensive job aids for performance support and Quick Skills review so training participants can quickly reference how to perform a specific skill in a matter of seconds.
Gmail, Calender, Docs, and Sites revolutionise the way employees collaborate and share. When your Enterprise “Goes Google” there is a major opportunity for significant productivity gains by dramatically changing the way employees collaborate and share their work. This training uniquely develops the skills of each employee so that the entire organisation can maximise its investment in Google Apps.
Many employees have a natural resistance to change; especially changing their primary software applications. Google Apps Training not only provides a highly effective solution to overcome that resistance, but it also develops new skills to materially increase productivity.
Single Sign-On – Access from the ‘more’ button
Google Apps Training is accessed from the ‘more’ button and displays in the browser, providing point of need training with no need to enter additional passwords. The course can be accessed under the “more button” from Gmail, Calendar, Docs, & Sites so it’s immediately available when needed.
Step-by-Step Instructional Design
Each course is comprised of lessons that are 2 to 5 minutes long, following a Step by Step Instructional design with explicit learning objectives for each lesson. The entire Gmail course is only 45 minutes long, Google Calendar is 25 minutes, Google Docs is 30 minutes and Google Sites is 30 minutes. The courses can be taken any time, anywhere, and in any order from within Gmail Calendar, Docs, or Sites. The Instructional Design is consistent for every lesson to ensure that the training participants know the skill, the benefit of the skill, and how to perform the specific skill taught in the lesson.
Index of Course Content as Quick Skills
A complete review of How to Do every skill developed in the course. As adults we all know we have limited retentive abilities. Unless we use a skill daily we can not quite remember exactly how to do what we want to do when we want to do it. The Instructional Design of Google Apps Training reflects this basic fact of adult learning retention. The Index of Course Content Quick Skill content is the solution. You can go to the Index and review a specific skill in seconds. In this section only the specific skill is taught.
The Quick Skills provide performance support at point of need. There is no faster and more effective method of reviewing a specific skill at Point of Need than the Quick Skills.
One of the unique aspect of Google Apps is the fact that at any time Google can update the applications with new features and functions. When you open your Google App the new feature is just there. Google Apps Training is updated for significant changes within 15 business days of the change to Google Apps. We notify IT administrators of all changes to the course at the time the change is made. Google Apps Training is the most current training available. Both the lessons and quick skills reflect the most current version of Google Apps.
