File Upload in Google Forms

Google Forms has a great feature that allows for file uploads. This is a fantastic tool for you teachers that don’t use Google Classroom, Canary, Edmodo, etc. For the most part, you are not worried about collecting assignments or projects digitally. However, there may come a time that you will want to, and¬†Google Forms is a solution. A few things that I like about uploading a file in a Form:

  1. You can limit what kind of file you want to accept. You don’t have to use this feature, but it could come in handy.
  2. Google will create a folder in your Google Drive that holds all of the uploaded files. So you can go within the form to grade or simply go to the folder and grade from there.

Here’s a quick tutorial:

In the video tutorial, I reference making a screenshot to insert into the form. Here’s blog post on how to do that: Use Lightshot to Markup a Screenshot
