autoCrat: Document Merge in Google Drive

autoCrat: Document Merge in Google Drive | technologies | Scoop.it
John Dalziel's insight:

FELTAG = more on-line courses.
If practitioners need to provide professional learning credits or proof of online participation, the Autocrat add-on will save them hours over the long term.
Just...
   - create an evaluation survey for participants to complete using a Google Form. Making sure all the information required for a participation certificate is included. Then...
   - open the spreadsheet for the results from the form and
   - use the Autocrat add-on to create a document that will auto-fill each respondent’s information and e-mail it out to all of them.

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!

The Internet for Left-Handers©

The Internet for Left-Handers© | technologies | Scoop.it

Since the majority of people are right-handed, including me, whenever you hover over a link you see a right-handed cursor.

 

It may not seem important to us right-handers but, even if you are a left-handed person, you are still forced to see the right-hand cursor.

 

Thanks to a useful Chrome plugin called “Internet for Left Handers” left-handed users can turn the right-hand cursor into a left-hand cursor while viewing the webpages.

 

So if you are a left-hander, simply install the plugin into your Chrome browser.

 

Once installed the plugin icon will appear to the right of the address bar in your browser. Simply click on it to enable or disable the left-hand cursor on webpages.

 

Tip: If the plugin doesn’t work after the installation, restart Chrome.
