Abstract: Google Spreadsheet is a powerful tool to manage student records online. It is more than a Web 2.0 version of Microsoft Excel as it performs many functions that are not available in Excel. One of many uses of Google Spreadsheets that could be useful to lecturers is managing students' grades and attendance online. In this paper, the author wishes to present his innovative ways of managing students' grades and attendance records using the wonder of Google Spreadsheet. In order to experiment with the Google way of doing things, the author embarked on a self-directed learning journey of discovering the functionality of the tools. By immersing himself with hundreds of syntax used to create functions in Google Spreadsheet, he managed to create a number of potentially useful innovations, Java is one of the world's most important and widely used computer languages, and it has held this distinction for many years. Unlike some other computer languages whose influence has worn with the passage of time, while Java's has grown. Java is a high level, robust, object-oriented, and a secure and stable programming language but it is not a pure object-oriented language because it supports primitive data types like int, char etc. Java is a platform-independent language because it has runtime environments i.e. JRE and API. Here platform means a hardware or software environment in which application runs. Java codes are compiled into byte code or machine-independent code. This byte code is run on JVM (Java Virtual Machine). The syntax is Java is almost the same as C/C++. But java does not support low-level programming functions like pointers. The codes in Java are always written in the form of Classes and objects. As of 2020, Java is one of the most popular programming languages in use, especially for the client-server web applications. It has been estimated that there are around nine million Java developers inside the world.
