Gmail training

Gmail is quickly becoming one of the most popular email services for schools, businesses and the general public. Why? Largely because it contains a multitude of user-friendly features, from allowing you to instantly chat with colleagues to helping you manage your inbox with labels and filters. However, the more you know about Gmail, the more you can utilize it to the best of its potential. Boost eLearning’s Google Apps training program covers everything there is to know about Gmail so people who use Google Apps can be more informed and productive. Here’s what our Gmail training covers:

Gmail basics
Gmail is very user-friendly, but it still contains a lot of features many people haven’t explored. We’ll walk you through everything from composing an email to creating your own signature to navigating your inbox and conversations. Each lesson contains several videos, giving you a simple, step-by-step guide to everything the email service has to offer.

Staying organized
Did you know you can filter your emails based on their content? Do you know how to create nested labels, or even how they can help you? All of these features and more are meant to keep you organized and productive, but you’ll only get those benefits if you know how to use them. Follow along as we show you how to stay organized and navigate your inbox.

Other Gmail features
There are a variety of other Gmail features, from unsending an email to using your online address book. We’ll teach you how to use these and many other features offered by Gmail. Plus, we’ll update our training when Gmail changes to keep you in the loop about any new offerings.
