Today I was looking for an alternative to Blackboard’s survey manager when I stumbled upon this great suggestion from Technology Bites. All you do is go to Google Docs (docs.google.com), create a new Google Docs Spreadsheet and share the spreadsheet with your students via a web form. It’s really quick and easy to use. See my @the.coalface article for the full story. Other ideas for creating on-line student surveys or experience of other alternatives to Blackboard welcome here or in the comments to that article.
