David_J's insight:

I must say that this Google site a very nice collection of my original intentions for this project. The presentation flows like a mini curated site, complete with highlighted text for each tip and a live animated example of each concept.

▶ How to Use Google Spreadsheets - Tips and Tricks - YouTube

Cali Lewis gives a few quick tips for using Google Spreadsheets. Visit Http://GeekBbeat.TV/TipADay for more awesome tips and tricks.
David_J's insight:

I love MS Excel and I agree Google Spreadsheet doesn't have the same functionality as Excel. Though I found this small collection of tips useful, by no means does it address the true limitations of Google's online spreadsheet. A classic example is pivot tables. I use them extensively in Excel but, to my knowledge, they're not available in Google spreadsheet. Not cool, but the tips here are helpful nonetheless.

Google 2014 - Tips, Tricks, and Tutorials

Google 2014 - Tips, Tricks, and Tutorials was presented to staff in the Ottawa Catholic School Board on March 1, 2014.
David_J's insight:

The embedded links in this presentation are very useful. I thought I'd add this collection of slides to this project because not only is it very relevant, but it adds another dimension to my curation. The content is well presented and I like the slide designs and compilation.

David_J's insight:

There are many reasons why this presentation made my collection of Google tips, none of which are related to the Google gal in the video frame. I guess she's there to get our attention. Be that as it may, the main reasons for adding this video to this project are:

 

•  The language is straightforward and easy to follow. Its target audience (kids) is a key factor;

•  The 'zoom in on the screen' feature is useful. This forces the learner to focus on the content being presented;

•  The breaks/pauses between each concept prepares the learner for the next tip;

•  The headings for the introduction of each tip are clear; and

•  The tips themselves!

 

The only downside to this presentation is its initial frame. The suggestive image is not appropriate for content geared towards children.
