I gave a presentation to faculty and staff today called about Google services. I focused on 5 cool things academics can do with Google Forms. Below is the slide presentation I used for the talk. I’ll be adding You Tube video in the little boxes soon to turn the presentation slides into a narrated presentation. Hopefully, anyone who missed the talk will still be able to get a lot out of the slides below.

UPDATE: I’ve now added the YouTube videos, but the last three videos had weird lighting issues. I’m going to have to re-record videos for those three slides.

    Wow, I didn’t know Google Docs had this option for embedding presentations in web pages! And I consider myself to be not only fairly tech-savvy, but also a Google-lover!

    This is excellent Andy – this is just the kind of presentation we need at the AAPT conference in Aug. How long did you talk on this? Would this work as 1/3 of a panel (20min), or do you think there is enough here to fill a whole 60 or 90min session?

    Thanks Peter.

    There’s definitely enough to fill 60 minutes. In the live version of the talk, I demonstrated some of this stuff. It took about an hour.
