Google Sheets

1 Points

In addition to offering users most of the common features available in other spreadsheet programs, Google Sheets also offers specific online benefits – sharing spreadsheet documents, online storage, shared, real-time editing over the Internet, and, most recently, offline access to files.

This is lesson one, not highly entertaining, but he does explain basic functions and has follow-up lessons in which do get more detailed and show more options within Google Sheets.
