Google Forms is a powerful tool for collecting data. It's free and easy-to-use and forms can be embedded into Canvas. We will share ideas on how we might use Forms for surveys, assessments, exit tickets, and event registrations. Then you will get hand-on time to build your own Google Form that you can use with your students. Instructor: Hedrick Ellis
