Google Forms for Educators

How to Build, Design and Use Google Forms

Learn how to build, design and use Google forms for educational contexts such as:

  • registration forms for events
  • sign-up forms for volunteers

  • any other uses you can think of

This one-hour “how to” session goes step by step to show you everything you need to know. By the end of this session you should be ready to build your own forms with ease. In case you need a refresher, this program includes a take-home manual in .pdf format so you can easily remember the steps later on when you need them.

Here’s what past participants of this program have said:

Google Translate with Conversation Mode

October 17, 2011

I am not a fan of online translation.

Or rather, I was not a fan of online translation.

For years I’ve been vehemently vocal about the pitfalls of leaving language translation up to a mechanical device.

I’ve just seen something that is making me reconsider. This is quite possibly the coolest thing I’ve seen in a while. Computer-based translation has come a long way in the past 15 years or so.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

How to Use Google Forms – Free Training Manual and Webinar Recording

February 22, 2011

Google forms are one of my favorite tools to use. You need a Google account (also known as a Gmail account) to use the forms. Once you have that, you can build any type of form you like. They are free and easy to design.

The primary ways I use them in webinars are:

  • Evaluations
  • Registration forms
  • Volunteer sign-up forms
  • Testimonial collection
