An Easy Way to Digitally Sign Documents

This blog post was inspired by my mother who asked me how to do this a couple of nights ago

Whether it's a form for your HR department, permission slips for athletics, or an acceptable use agreement for a school-issued laptop, back-to-school season often involves signing a lot of documents. In the old days those documents would be printed and you'd sign them then stick them in a mailbox and hope they didn't get lost in the shuffle. Today, most of the forms we need to sign can be sent, signed, and returned online. There are many tools available that make this quick and easy to do. HelloSign is the one that I use and recommend for digitally signing documents that have been sent to me.

In the following video I demonstrate how to use HelloSign to fill-out and sign documents online.

Easily Sign Documents In Your Browser or On Your Tablet

The other day I received an email from a reader who was looking for a way to digitally sign documents. My suggestion was to try Hello Sign. Hello Sign is a service that allows you to digitally sign documents. Hello Sign can be used in your web browser, on your iPhone, on your iPad, and on your Android tablet.

On your computer you can use Hello Sign to record your signature by using your mouse or by importing a picture of your signature. Then whenever you need to sign a document just upload it to Hello Sign and apply your stored signature. You can email your newly signed document directly from Hello Sign. Alternatively you can use the Hello Sign Chrome app or the Hello Sign Gmail plug-in.

On your iPhone, iPad, or Android device you can use Hello Sign by selecting a document or by taking a picture of a document. I tried it out on my iPad and was impressed by how easy it was to use. I just opened the app, logged into my Hello Sign account, and snapped a picture of a document. After the picture was captured I had the option to apply a stored signature or sign the document using my finger on my iPad's screen.

HelloSign for Gmail Allows You to Put Your Signature on Attachments

A few months ago HelloSign released a Chrome web app that allows you to apply your signature to any document in your Google Drive account. This past week they released a Gmail plug-in that allows you to apply your signature to any document sent to you through Gmail. This convenient tool allows you to fill out and sign documents in Gmail. This eliminates the need to print, sign, and scan documents that you need your written signature or initials. See how it works in the 47 second video below.

I love little productivity tools like HelloSign enable busy teachers to quickly take care of administrative tasks and spend more time focusing on the thing that love about teaching, actually teaching.
