I had previously made a post on how to add a Favicon to your website. In that post I linked back to a website that had directions for creating a favicon in a Google Site. Apparently that post no longer exists so I thought I would make the directions myself.
Today as I was working on Google Forms to create some forms for my colleagues in the university, the idea of providing my readers here with some practical pre-made template forms dawned on me. I know many of you would have recourse to the services provided by Google Forms and sometimes it would take you a lot of time to get what you want into form; having a set of ready made forms can make your job easier knowing that most of the ones I handpicked for you today are among the most used templates in Google Docs.
Doctopus is a Google Spreadsheet script developed by Andrew Stillman that can help teachers manage the flow of shared work in in their Google Drive accounts. The basic concept behind the script is to enable teachers to quickly share documents with all of the students on a roster, monitor usage of shared documents, and give students feedback within that roster spreadsheet.
