Online Productivity Applications


Zoho Writer

Google Docs

Online productivity applications allow users to create and share documents over the internet. Word processing, spreadsheets, presentations — these can all be done using web-based applications like Zoho and Google Docs. Your documents are stored online and can be accessed anywhere you have an internet connection.

Forgot to take your flash drive to the library and can’t print your resume? No problem if you’ve saved it to Zoho! Wrote your paper at school in Word 2007 and can’t open it with Word 2003 at home? Google Docs to the rescue! One advantage to using web-based applications is that you don’t have to worry about different software versions or file types. You can email files or move from one computer to another — the documents go wherever you go! You can even share a file with several people and work on it together.

Check out Zoho or Google Docs to learn more about online productivity applications! 

Note: If you use Gmail, Google Docs is already built into your account. Just click on the Documents link at the top of the screen.

    My son’s 5th grade class has the option of using the Google Docs so they can work on stuff at school & home. So far, he hasn’t used it but hopefully he will catch on how nice it is!
