I created this site for you to learn about Google Apps and a variety of tech tools available to you.
For Google apps (see tabs) I included several tutorials from the past 6 months because Google changes things so quickly. I tried to include a beginner (note: I even learned things watching the beginner) and intermediate video.
Below you will find a list of tools that are available to you – some are free and some we purchase.
As always, please let me know if you
And if you come across something awesome you think I should add, please let me know!
