I read about this Form function in Google Docs, then watched the embedded video below and was blown away. I know that I got here a few months after the party started (it was released in January) but it looks like it is going to be a great tool for educators. Right off the top of my head I can think of the following uses:
- Collect student information on first day of class
- Collect information from staff
- Create a fast survey
- Create a quick quiz
- Collect data from friends and family (birthdays, anniversaries, etc)
I'll share my progress as I experiment with this over the next couple of months and prepare some things to start the 2008 school year. I am jumping in with a quick one question survey for my readers as my first try at creating a form.
I'll post the information I gathered in a week and give some feedback on how well it worked.
