Assignment Dropbox with Google Form

Gone are the days when students complete a paper worksheet and then put it in the wire box on the teacher’s desk. In today’s world, students are creating digital projects using a variety of tools on computers and mobile devices.

It can become difficult for the teacher to find and keep track of all of the students’ digital products/projects. One solution is to have students use tools that will provide a URL for their finished product, and then to collect those URLs using a Google form
