Kaizena Adds Tags to Voice Comments for Google Documents

Kaizena is a great add-on for Google Documents and Google Presentations. Kaizena allows you to add voice comments to Google Documents and Presentations that are shared with you. Earlier this month a notification feature was added to Kaizena. Today, Kaizena added a feedback tagging option.

Kaizena tags allow you to select a portion of a document or presentation at tag it with a skill, a Common Core standard, or an element from a rubric.

Kaizena can be added to your Google Documents through the Add-ons menu in Google Drive.

Applications for Education
Tags can be combined with voice comments. Use voice comments to explain to students how they met a standard that you have tagged in one of their documents or presentations.

Kaizena Adds Built-in Notifications for Voice Comments on Google Docs and Presentations

Kaizena is a fantastic tool for adding voice comments to Google Documents and Google Presentations. The latest update to Kaizena streamlines feedback notifications.

Beginning today whenever a student responds to or acts upon your feedback, you will receive a notification in your Kaizena dashboard. You will also receive an email (you can turn off the email option). Along with new notifications for you, students now receive notifications when you post new feedback for them.

Kaizena notifications are now integrated into the comments section of Google Documents and Google Presentations. When you leave feedback for students through Kaizena a link to that voice comment is added to the comments section of the document or presentation.
