Scheduling Meetings: Choice Eliminator Google Forms Plugin

Image
I happened on this plugin for Google Forms that will eliminate a choice once it has been chosen and submitted in a form. This has the potential to streamline scheduling office hours or other meetings. I am sure that there are other applications as well.


The plugin may be found and installed at the following link: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/choice-eliminator-2/mnhoinjhhhafgieggnhjekliaodnkigj

I found this plugin from a post in the Free Tech for teachers blog. It is one option in a list of options. While focusing on the K-12 venue, this blog is a great resource for any instructor regardless of teaching level, and is listed in our list of "Noteworthy Blogs."

UPDATE: Free Transcription (Speech to Text) Tool

We have updated the post about using Google Voice Typing in Google Docs for transcription to include a note about accessibility. Google Docs is not the most accessible tool. It is possible however to download any Google Doc as a Microsoft Word document.


To do so:
Click File > Download As... > Microsoft Office (.docx).

Doing so will create a Microsoft Word document of the file, which is more accessible to those who may need to use a screen reader.
