The Schoencast: Screencasting #autoCrat 3

The Schoencast: Screencasting #autoCrat 3

It was a great experience; we heard from the New Visions team, Google’s Jonathan Rochelle, and I got to watch a dozen powerful, informative, and inspirational ignite talks from other educators. The event was filmed and I hope to be able to share more pictures and video soon.

autoCrat is a Google Sheets add-on that’s been essential to my workflow for the past two years. Recently, I had the opportunity to participate in the release event from for New Vision Cloud Lab’s autoCrat version 3 at Google in New York City. I gave an ignite talk about using autoCrat to automate grading and get more meaningful data so that teachers can spend more time helping students.

Until then, I’ll share some brief screencasts and tutorials for using autoCrat. It’s a complicated add-on at first, but has so much power and potential. I’ve separated this edition of The Schoencast into three parts: an introduction to autoCrat and basic merging, sending and sharing merged files, and a more advanced look at merge features and the updates for version 3.

Why autoCrat?

PART 1: Introduction to autoCrat and basic merges

PART 2: Sending and sharing merges

PART 3: Updates and advanced features

I hope you found something of value in this edition of The Schoencast. Give autoCrat or another New Visions add-on a try and share your thoughts and uses in the comments or on Twitter @MrSchoenbart.
