ABOUT OTAN TRAINING: Workshop Descriptions

Workshop title Customizing Google Tools! 
Workshop description

This online workshop is akin to a "Google Tools Slam!" where many different Google Tools are demonstrated as well as how to customize and use them in an adult education setting. Topics are dependent on the whim of the trainer - every session will be different! Topics may include but are not limited to: Maps Engine, Tour Builder, Chrome Extensions, Google+ communities, Hangouts!, Sites, Chrome Web Store, Labs, Accounts, Phrasebook, Blogger, Keep, and more!

How many tips, tricks, and tools can be covered? Join the workshop to find out! (trainer not responsible for brain overloads...)

Prerequisites: All participants should have a Google account. Participants that do not have a Google account may not be able to follow along but will still be able to watch the magic.

Session length 1.5 
Format Workshops: Synchronous online trainings, or series of trainings, in which facilitator and participants interact by voice or chat.
