+ • For me to CREATE this form I require a google account which gives me access to Gmail, You tube account and other handy features like blogger. • Others who complete form do not require a google account to complete (no sign in required)
+ However…. If you would like to use other features eg google presentations as a collaborative exercise then participants DO require a google account/signing in… Just like a power point but can work on it anytime, anywhere..eg with group work (sick student at home or overseas projects)
+ Other advantage of signing in: If participants sign in you can view the REVISION HISTORY of the assignment. (who has contributed and when- great for group work to see balance of contributions…)
