How to: add voice, text and video comments to student Google Docs



Brought to you by the inimitable Susan Hennessey, who shows here how you can use the Chrome browser extension Kaizena to add record voice comments and link students to video resources on a sample writing assignment. Best part: you can assemble a library of video resources and shoot out your favorites over and over.

Anyone been looking for something along these lines?

Interviewing students and yelling in PHP are the best parts of her job.


What do you think?

  • Wow! Kaizena will be a great tool for me going forward. I like how I can build a growing library of resources to post within student documents. Will the students find the teacher’s posted resources and recordings by opening the google document, or must the students also open their document in Kaizena?
