Google Docs

Google Docs are the most commonly used tools. You should think of Google Docs as an online suite of tools and much like Microsoft Office. One of the many benefits of using Google docs, besides the fact that they are free, is the ability to access these documents from anyplace in the world where there is Internet service. Another great benefit, is the ability to share these files easily with others. When you share your documents, you can allow other simply to view or you can give them the right to edit documents as co-authors.
