  1. Hi, Laura. I have been teaching freshman college English for about 18 years now, and I’m always looking for ways to make my grading process more efficient and to improve the student experience. So thank you so much for your video on incorporating Google Keep with Google Docs when grading paper. Up to now, I’ve been using a combination of Blackboard and Microsoft Track Changes. But I like your system much better. So my question is did you make a video of how to set up a shared class folder in Google Docs, and can you send me the link or the title of the video. I know I could just Google the title a couple of different ways, but I really like your presentation and find it easy to learn from you. By the way, I have been a fan of voice to text technology for quite some time. I make extensive use of Dragon Naturally Speaking. Hope to here from you. Tom Molinaro
