I have used G-mail for some time, but I have not known how to use many of the functions--I only used it to send and receive e-mails. This course has allowed me to learn effective ways to communicate with specific groups of people; for example, parents and students. Now, I know that I can set up groups and send out information that is germaine to all members of that specific group. I can send out class announcements to parents of a particular class letting them know the date and time of a field trip, for example. I now know how to set up groups and how to label those groups.
