O365: Forms with Authentication between Students and Teachers

This is a great WEB2oOL to use to collect data. This is similar to Google Forms, but it has one feature that has been missing.  BV folks can send between Teacher and Student and require authentication.

BV Staff and Students all have access to this WEB2oOL in their BV O365 account.  It is simple to use.  You can create one easily by logging into your account at o365.bluevallyek12.org . Then click the Forms app and create!

Watch my video tutorial to see how you can send between teachers and students and require a login.  This is super for quizzes, voting or anything where you want to ensure that the user is who they say that they are.

Teacher Integration Ideas:

  • Collect parent information at Back to School Night.
  • Collect data from a science lab, then share the response sheet to the class for analysis.
  • Use as a sign up for limited seats, for example to sign up for JAG during PLC.  Use form limiter to limit the number in attendance.
  • Collect data with surveys.
  • Convert office/clerical forms to Google Forms.
  • Students can grade student presentations as they watch to provide additional feedback from their peers.
  • Use the Quizzes feature to collect AFL data from students.

Google Drive: Forms

This is a great WEB2oOL to use to collect data. Do you get frustrated by the use of “Reply to All”?  With this 2oOL alone, you can start to change this phenomenon one human at a time 🙂

BV Staff and Students all have access to this WEB2oOL in their BV Google Drive account.  It is simple to use.  You can create one easily by logging into your BV Google Drive account. Then click NEW/ More/ Google Forms.  Give it a name in the upper left.

MS Word: Add Form Elements

Do you think it is odd to fill out a Word form that has underlines in the places that they want you to enter text?  Do you delete the line, do you just type in the middle of it?  It is really strange!  Word has a 2oOL that you can use to create a fill-able document.  See the screen shots for directions on how to do that. Or open this document for complete directions along with an example of some of the form items that Word has included: Word_MakeFillableDocument.

Directions – Part 1 – Add the Developer Tab:

Word_InputAndCheckBoxes

Step 2 – Create and Make Usable:

Word_MakeFillableDocument Part 2

When you share this, keep it as a word document.  When you save as PDF, this will eliminate your form features.  Of course, Adobe PDF has their own Form Creation 2oOL.  It is a bit more complicated than this little gem, so try this out first.  If you want to start collecting data, get with me on some viable options.
