Google Docs is a free, web-based file sharing program. Google docs lets you create documents in a word processing format (or save your Microsoft Word document) and save them to be opened anywhere you have internet access. You can create and save presentations and spreadsheets in Google docs, as well.
Your documents will be safely stored in Google's servers and accessible wherever you have a web browser.

There are several ways to access Google Docs:
1. Enter https://docs.google.com in the address bar. If you don't already have a Google account, this is where you'll create one.

3. Or login to your google account and from the link bar at the top of the screen, select more, then Documents.

Collaboration and Group Projects
Once you have a Google account, members of a group can SHARE their documents with others. You can give them access as viewers or collaborators. This allows all named account holders to access your document and make changes or additions. It's easy!
