6 Steps to Add Voice Comments to Google Docs ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

6 Steps to Add Voice Comments to Google Docs ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Literacy Sites for PVNC | Scoop.it

"With this new application in Google Docs ( Drive ), teachers can now record their audio comments and share them with their students. I see this as a better way to give feedback on students' work and I do believe there are things we can express with our voice that no written code could ever capture like the tone and intonation..etc."

Update/Tip: I tried it out-if you have to change your original document-just copy it and add voice to it-121 Writing doesn't sync with your Google Docs updates.

Excellent! I'm adding this app!
