Course Description:
One of the biggest challenges for educators is finding enough time to do everything they would like to do in the classroom. This course is designed to support time-strapped educators with tips on how to improve their workflow in Gmail, other Google Apps and some web-based tools. This course will highlight many great ideas on how to improve your workflow, then give you an opportunity to put these ideas into practice and discuss the benefits/challenges of these ideas as implemented in your daily work schedule.

Special Note:
You must have access to Google Apps for this course. You can access many of the tech tools via your personal Google account if your school is not a Google Apps for Education school. Click here to create a Gmail account if you don’t have a personal account.
