New Text Formatting Options in Google Forms

At the end of June Google added some new text formatting options to Google Forms. Those options enable you customize the fonts used for titles, section headers, and questions within your Google Forms. Last week Google added even more text formatting options to Google Forms. 

The latest update to Google Forms gives you rich text formatting options. That means you can now bold, italicize, underline, and hyperlink any of the text in your form’s title, section headers, and questions. In this short video I demonstrate how that works. 

Applications for Education

As I demonstrated in the video above, using the hyperlinking tool when writing a question in Google Forms could be a good way to provide students with a direct link to an online article that they have to read, analyze, and then answer questions about.
