How to Save Time When Adding Comments to Google Docs

This morning I showed one of my favorite time-saving tricks to a great group of adult education teachers. The "trick" is to save time when adding comments to students' Google Docs. You can do this with canned comments in Google Classroom and there are some Google Docs Add-ons that do similar things. The most straight-forward method is to write your frequently used comments as notes in Google Keep and then just copy and paste them into comments in Google Docs through the use of the side panel in Google Docs. Watch my video to learn how to save time when adding comments to students' Google Documents.


You might be wondering why I didn't just use the canned comments option in Google Classroom. The reason is that the teachers I was working with this morning didn't have access to Google Classroom.
