Voice Comments in Google Docs!

Thanks to 121Writing.com (formerly Learn.ly), teachers can now insert voice comments into student documents! I have used it and it is AWESOME! You can try it out HERE or watch the video below made by my friend Jen Roberts for more information.

VideoNot.es

VideoNot.es is a great Chrome extension that allows you (and students!) to:
- Watch videos and take notes at the same time, on the same screen - Keep the same shortcuts to play/pause your video while writing notes - Automatically synchronize your notes and video. Just click on a line of your notes to jump to the related part of the video. Everything is automatically stored in your Google Drive, to access everywhere.
