4 awesome ways to add audio to Google Forms!

Have you ever needed to insert your voice into a survey that you’ve been creating? Perhaps you’re trying to find a way for your students to respond with their voice in a form? Mote and Google Forms to the rescue!! 🦸◡🦸

Here are 4 ways that Mote allows our community to add voice notes to Google Forms; as both creator and respondent!

As creator (teacher)

1. Question Description

Make questions accessible and more engaging for all

– Open a new question and press the Mote button
– Tap button again to finish

What – you’ve now added a voice note to a question description in Forms! If you’d like to check how it looks/plays, view the form in preview mode.

2. Multiple choice options

Whether it’s in the world language classroom or responding to a verbal cue, some forms of assessment may require respondents to pick from a number of different audio options.

– Open up the Motepad by tapping on the Mote extension
– Click on ‘record a mote’
– Paste the auto-copied link into your multiple choice question
– Repeat process for all required

Congrats! You’ve added audio options within a multiple choice question.

3. Audio feedback

When your students respond to a self-marking quiz, it’s nice for them to get feedback. It’s even better if it’s personalized. It’s better still if it’s their teacher’s voice! Guess what? Mote allows anyone to do this.

– Set your Google Form up as a quiz
– Click ‘add answer feedback’
– Leave a mote in both correct and incorrect feedback
– Done!

Congrats! Your students will get a much better experience when they submit their answers via a Google Form now – right or not, they will hear your voice!

As respondent (student)

Maybe you’re a world languages teacher; perhaps you want to use Forms as a daily reflection tool for your students; maybe you just want to give your learners another way to express their understanding. For all of these examples and more – Mote is delighted to allow respondents to Google Forms the option of answering with their voice!

Whether it’s saving time, accessibility, tone or language learning… there are so many ways why this is important and a game changer!

With Mote installed, when a student opens up a Google Form, they will notice a mote button in all of the places they are able to record a verbal response.

Now you’ve made your form, you and your students will get the best all-round Google Form voice experience ever! Only warning is this: students will become super engaged and want more (and more) opportunities to leave their voice in Forms!! 🚀
