G Suite Training is a Google Chrome extension that offers simple and interactive training lessons to get you up and running fast with G Suite (formerly Google Apps).

Clicking the icon will reveal a list of interactive training lessons for the app you’re currently working in. Lessons are organized by topic and each lesson has a checkmark next to its name colored gray or green letting you know if you have completed the lesson or not.  If you already know about a topic in the list, you can click on the checkmark to change it from gray to green indicating your mastery of that lesson.

If you can’t find a lesson browsing through the topics list, just enter a keyword in the Search box at the top of the G Suite Training menu to see if there’s a lesson available related to your keyword.

What to Expect from the Lessons

When you start a lesson, a box will appear in the bottom left corner of the screen containing voice notes for the audio that plays and controls for pausing the lesson and skipping ahead to the next lesson in the play list.

As you watch your screen, you may notice another mouse cursor moving in your window and visual prompts that appear to guide you to click and interact with the lesson.  When you are asked to perform a task in the lesson, the lesson will pause giving you time to interact with the application and will only continue once you have completed the given task.

This extension is like having a personal Google assistant on your computer anytime you need them.  You’ll be learning in no time and becoming an expert at everything Google!
