One of the best things I like about Google Drive is the ability to integrate third party applications to enhance the performance of your Drive and increase your productivity. I have already featured some important apps to install on your Google Drive in a previous post entitled "6 Must Have Google Drive Extensions for Teachers". However, today I am adding another three wonderful tools that you should definitely try out.

1- Kaizena
This is a great application that allows you to add audio comments to the content of your Google documents. This could be a good way to deliver feedback to your students. To use Kaizena , you need to be logged in to your Google account and just like any other third party application, to integrate Kaizena into your Google Docs you will have to grant it access to your Drive.

Watch the video below to learn how to use Kaizena to add audio comments to your Drive documents.

2- Cacoo

Cacoo is a user friendly online drawing tool that allows you to create a variety of diagrams such as site maps, wire frames, UML and network charts. Cacoo can be used free of charge. Cacoo makes Real-Time Collaboration a reality! A diagram created with Cacoo can be edited by multiple people at the same time. Changes by users are reflected in real-time.

Lucidchart is a  visual collaboration tool that makes drawing diagrams fast and easy. Work together with an unlimited number of others to create and edit diagrams in real time, with changes merged and synced instantaneously -- great for team collaboration .
