And that's it! Once the browser reloads, you'll have access to tons of new tools, including the new right-hand sidebar. This contains three tools that you'll soon find invaluable: Calendar, Keep, and Tasks. This same sidebar will soon be rolling out to Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Drawings over the next 2 weeks. Learn how to use these products side-by-side HERE.
These tools will be a great help for students:
- Take notes in Keep and insert them into a Doc
- Check their Calendar to schedule a study session without leaving GMail
- Make a collaborative To-Do List for a project and check off items from Docs, Sheets, or Slides
- ...the possibilities are really almost endless...!
