Microsoft OneDrive - Access files anywhere. Create docs with free Office Online. | ITT EdTech | Scoop.it
Store photos and docs online. Access them from any PC, Mac or phone. Create and work together on Word, Excel or PowerPoint documents.
Mark Ayton's insight:

When you're comfortable with MS Office, despite the sharing and real-time collaboration advantages, the leap to Google Docs can seem just too much! Then there's all your existing Word, Excel and Powerpoint files, will they all need reworking?

Fret no more! MS has replicated just about every Google feature in a very familiar Office environment. It's web-based so will run on any device with a browser. It has all the common MS Office menu items and features, plus it allows sharing and real time collaboration. There are even forms for collecting survey / quiz data in spreadsheets.

I'm not aware of any scripting / add-in capability yet, but I'm sure it won't be far away.

Google Forms Gets A Refresh, Adds Collaboration And Smarter Editing Features | TechCrunch | ITT EdTech | Scoop.it
Google Forms just got a nice little refresh and now allows you to build questionnaires and collect the data in a Google Drive spreadsheet a bit easier.

Mark Ayton's insight:

For ages I've been extoling the virtues of Google Docs for collaboration with just one caveat, only one person can work on a Form at a time. At last that caveat has been removed. This latest update just makes so much sense!

Mark Ayton's insight:

Are you using Google Docs with your learners or considering trying it out, maybe for a project or assignment, or just because you're feeling inspired? Here's a new Google Docs drop down menu that should help!

Add-ons provide a whole new set of easy to use features, like Diagram production, Thesaurus, Language translation, Bibliography creator, Templates, Mind maps, Charts from Google spreadsheet data, Music notation, Clip-art, Calculator, Twitter curator to name but a few.

Check them out, they really should make learning activity creation a breeze!

One caution: if your institution is has its own Google domain you may need to get your administrator to release this feature.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Easy Steps to Create Self Grading Assessment Using Google Forms

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Easy Steps to Create Self Grading Assessment Using Google Forms | ITT EdTech | Scoop.it
Mark Ayton's insight:

I make no secret of being a big Google Docs fan. I've delivered workshops on making self-marking quizzes using Google Forms and the Flubaroo script, and can say with confidence that all the essentials are covered in this neat 7min video. Use it pre-delivery to gauge existing knowledge, post-delivery to gauge value adding, or even during delivery to generate discussion!

Collaboration in Forms only appears to be available on a newly created Form. Existing Forms remain one editor at a time.Unlike other Google Docs there isn't the usual blue Share button, instead collaborators are invited from the File menu.
