Google Docs and Spreadsheets is an easy-to-use online word processor and spreadsheet editor that enables you and your students to create, store, and share documents and spreadsheets instantly and securely and collaborate online in real time.
The main page allows users to create a free account to access the documents and spreadsheets. There is also a tour (tutorial) for learning to use the site, as well as a help page.

This site is equally useful to educators, students, and the general public. Users can create or upload their own documents, invite others to share them by email address, edit documents online with anyone they choose, publish the documents online to the world or only to who they choose, and post their documents to a blog. The Web-based program keeps documents current and theyre always accessible from any computer with an Internet connection. Teachers can use this site to promote group work and peer editing skills, to publish announcements or upcoming assignments, and to monitor student progress via an interactive process. Work is saved automatically when updates are entered and students will find it easy to collaborate with other students and get feedback from teachers or parents.
