That's why we're excited to share three new resources to help you build a solid understanding of generative AI, so you can start applying it in your workflows — whether you're a curious beginner or looking to expand your evolving skill set.

1. Learn from the experts with the Google AI Essentials course

Google AI Essentials is a self-paced course designed to help people across roles and industries learn AI skills to boost their productivity. Led by Google's own AI experts, the course features hands-on lessons on how to use Gemini for Google Workspace in Docs, Sheets, Slides and more.

Speed up daily work tasks. Clear out that inbox faster using AI to help you summarize emails and draft responses. Throughout the course, you’ll learn how to write effective prompts to get the results you’re looking for and how to identify AI’s potential biases so you can use it responsibly.
