John’s Google Forms story


  • Google Forms is fully embeddable in D2L or Moodle (as a news item)
  • Google Forms ( and Qualtrics ( have similar but not identical features. Qualtrics can do more, and is free for UW-Madison, but is more complicated to learn; one or the other might work best for your needs.
  • Get anonymous qualitative and quantitative formative feedback from students and give students credit for it by linking a “click here for credit” (not anonymous) survey where they enter their name to get credit.
  • Google Forms does branching! (insert new sections and direct certain answers there)
