Save As Doc - Google Sheets add-on

Save As Doc - Google Sheets add-on | technologies | Scoop.it
Convert any Google Sheets spreadsheet into a Google Document for improved legibility of lengthy cell text entries.
John Dalziel's insight:

If practitioners use Google Forms to create and deliver quizzes/assessments to learners (and if not why not?) the only real problem we face is when we add-in short answer or essay questions.

The responses spreadsheet, if we're honest, becomes unwieldy and difficult to read.
Save As Doc, a free Google Spreadsheets Add-on, can solve that problem!
It allows users to select the cells containing learners' short answer/essay responses and turns them into a document that will appear in their Google Drive dashboard (it might take a minute or two to appear if users have selected a large set of cells); practitioners can then easily view, edit, read, download as a pdf, grade and/or, if they have to, print the resulting document.

Another must have tool for making life easier!

Number 6 is high onmy list.

Mark Stanley's curator insight, May 8, 2013 6:36 PM

All of these tools are stand alone are not connected to anything.  Assessment tools should connect with google or edmodo or other platform points to keep the flow in the class. YOu shoudl look at a product like Literatu ( www.literatu.com) - that really does a good job. They promise any teacher can deliver any activity to any device, in minutes.....and they deliver.

blubbr

blubbr | technologies | Scoop.it

Blubbr : Create and Play Quizzes from YouTube Videos

John Dalziel's insight:

Blubbr is a free website that lets users create and play quiz games from YouTube videos.

The site calls these “Trivs”. Users can play trivs in different categories, from celebs and music to sport and, more importantly, education.

These trivs can then be shared with anyone across the internet.
Once a short piece of video has been watched, the first question will appear. When answered, users are presented with another piece of video and then another question and so on.
There are many Trivs already on the site, however the quality and content is quite varied. Note: the site is still in Beta.
Practitioners can make their own Trivs using the Triv builder tool however, the site only uses YouTube videos, so if access is blocked by your employer, that will be an issue.

One final thought, practitioners could get learners to create their own Trivs for each other as a homework task perhaps?
