What is LucidChart?
LucidChart offers cloud-based flow chart creation, with the ability to share your documents with others. LucidChart can also be added to your Goshen College Google account as a third-party application so you can collaborate on your LucidChart documents through your Google account, and also use LucidChart as an add-on in Google Docs and Drive.
Goshen College currently has limited free LucidChart licenses for employees. If you are an employee and need access to LucidChart, please contact the ITS Help Desk at 574-535-7700 to request a license and get assistance with setting up your LucidChart account.
