How to find what you need to make a Google Forms tutorial


  1. I started in Google, of course! I used search terms like "Google Forms Tutorial."
  2. I hit the jackpot on the first page. I prefer written tutorials with diagrams. How could I pass up something described as a "must read guide?" I added the tutorial to my Pearltrees curation spot.
  3. I've made basic forms before. I was not aware of the "theme" options (gotta LOVE the birthday cats! - click below)or the techniques for linking pictures and YouTube videos. I was able to read and practice, step by step.
  4. I sent a quiz to the ITDML group and asked them to PLEASE take it, which gave me the answers in a sample spreadsheet. I got enough answers to start my tutorial.

  6. I use the free version of Screencast-O-Matic. Free has its limitations. I recorded for about 4 hours. SOMETHING was always "off." One time, the sound didn't work. After I recorded this one, I put it on YouTube... then I remembered something I forgot, and decided I was not going to spend more time.
  7. Practice makes perfect. The Instructional Tool is quite simple to use. I look forward to integrating it into my Google Classroom.
