World Cloud Generator

Use this add-on to quickly assess what your emerging theme is, how to best categorize your document, or if it is someone's else's document - find out the theme of the document without reading it. 
The #1 Word Cloud add-on for Google Docs just got tricked out. Loads of new features including control over number of words, prettifying the cloud, dropping words and including a word count table in the document. 
We have completely revamped the code and added several new features. You can: ->Use an Advanced Tab that lets you play with the word cloud->Control the # of words you want to display in the cloud->Let the add-on make the cloud “pretty” automatically ->Drop specific words (with type ahead help)->Insert a word count table in the document

Students can also utilize this add-on by seeing which words they use the most often in writing and switching them out with synonyms.

Joe Zoo

Google Docs is good, but not great for teachers.

Giving writing feedback, building rubrics and grading docs are all painful for teachers - wasting 18+ hours per class assignment. JoeZoo thinks teacher time is too valuable to waste in Google Docs. So we build better tools for teachers.

JoeZoo Express, our Google Docs add-on, has 3 time-saving marking tools:

+ Writing Feedback
+ Rubric Builder
+ Grading Assignments

Our tools are automated, teacher-designed, preloaded with feedback and requires no student installation - facts that have resulted in our nomination for the Digital Innovation in Learning award (DILA).
