I hope that you all had a great long weekend. I don't know about you,
but spring can't come soon enough! This week I've got a brand new way to
schedule and see your already scheduled Google Plus Hangouts, a neat
way to leave voice comments on Google Documents and changes to our SU
email login page. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, do
not hesitate to ask!
Have a great week!
SU Tips and Tricks
Kaizena - Voice Comments for Google Doc's
This Google Drive application allows you to use voice and text comments
in Google Documents as well as link to resources pertaining to your
comment. For example, if a student misuses APA format, you could
highlight the text and link to a website or video explaining APA. Go
ahead and click the link above to give it a try or watch this YouTube video demoing how it works!
