G Suite Training App

The GSuite Training is a Chrome extension that provides interactive tutorials on a variety of Google Apps including Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Sheets, Sites, Classroom, and Slides. The extension exists within each app and the tutorials change depending on which app is open.

When you open the extension you will see a searchable list of tutorials. When you open a tutorial, an audio clip begins to play and the extension takes over your screen. You are prompted to complete a series of tasks. It is almost like having a Google coach sitting right next to you. You can play the tutorial over and over again until you are confident that you have mastered the task.

Applications for Education
Schools can install this extension for all of the users in a domain. Students could be directed to use the extension to find answers to their questions about how to use a certain tool before asking for help.
