Mote installed in your Chrome web browser you should already have access to using Mote in your Gmail. (You might have to relaunch Chrome and approve Mote for it appear in Gmail). When you compose an email in Gmail you should see the Mote icon appear in the menu next to the “send” button. Click the Mote icon to record a message and have it automatically inserted into the email you’re composing.

For some people recording a voice note might be a quicker way to respond to students’ email messages. I like the voice option because it provides an easy way to use inflection and tone when giving students feedback on their work or when responding to their questions.
