I enjoyed exploring the online productivity tools. I explored Google docs I created and saved a document that I will use from my school. I can see how when collaborating on projects these would be very useful. You can edit, create, access the documents from any computer. That would be a huge benefit during a collaborative project. However, most of the time I use the programs that I already have on my computer as I am more familiar with them and can quickly create my documents. But it is nice to know that this option exists especially as we all start our graduate program and will have many collaborative projects to create.
