Use Google Forms to Collect Your Students' Digital Work

Many teachers assign work to their students that results in some form of digital product.  The following tutorial is one method that could be used to help collect and organize all of this work.  The basic concept is to use a single Google Form that has enough questions to allow the teacher to filter the submissions and review the student work in any way the teacher prefers.  A significant feature of this method is the automatic time and date stamp added to each student entry so that assignments can have due dates and times outside of the traditional class period.  I'd be interested to hear what you think of this process, so please leave a comment.

Please note that if your students are in a different Google Apps domain than your teacher account, you will need to uncheck the box that requires the person submitting the form to be in your domain to make the form "public."
