Week 11: Surveys and Forms

Forms and surveys are great tools for educators to use to collect information, organize information, share ideas, and much more.  Web2.0 has made creating and using online forms a snap.  There are several tools out there to use to create forms.  I will focus on Google Docs forms, but will share others as well. 

Google Forms are a part of Google Docs. This is one great reason to use Google Forms for your online forms and survey needs.  Your forms and spreadsheets are easily accessible with you other Google Docs and they can easily be embedded in blogs, wikis and web pages.  You can also send a survey embedded in an e-mail.
