No matter how you use Mote, there’s almost certainly a lot more that you could be doing with voice notes to increase your productivity, human connection and accessible communication.
And, to encourage you on your personal learning quest with Mote, we’ve introduced eight Achievement badges that are unlocked every time you try something new. 🚀
Here’s a run down of the eight Mote Achievements:
Google Docs is the original grand-mammy of Mote integrations and now, there are two super simple ways to use Mote within Google’s flagship Workspace app. To earn your Achievement, you’ll just need to create ten motes within Google Docs, using either commenting or in-page hypermotes.
There’s so many ways to use Mote within Google Classroom, for feedback, whole-class communication or group discussions. To earn your Achievement, you’ll need to create ten motes within Google Classroom. Mote really is the ideal medium for feedback – so what are you waiting for?!
If you’ve not used Mote for Google Slides, then you’ve been missing out. We’ve created the easiest and fastest way to record and insert audio within Google Slides. To earn your Achievement, you just need to create a single mote within Google Slides.
Did you know that you can use Mote to create voice-powered forms, and to give voice feedback on Forms quizzes? If not, you do now! Check it out – a single mote recorded in Forms is all you need to earn this badge.
You can record motes at any time using the Motepad – it’s what we call the recorder that is part of the Mote extension, easily discovered from your web browser window. Earn your badge by creating a single recording with the Motepad.
Speech to text
We’re big believers in the value of adding speech to text transcription to your voice notes. They make it easier for your recipient to quickly scan your voice note, and to refer back to it at a later time. We’ve made it really easy to access speech to text – it’s a premium feature, but remember you can always access an upgrade by sharing Mote with a friend.
If you have a student or colleague who isn’t a strong native speaker in English (or whatever language you typically communicate), try using Mote’s easy Translation feature. You can translate the transcript of your voice note to your recipient’s native language and help ensure they understand both the content and the intention of your communication.
