Microsoft Forms is a web-based application that is a part of the Office 365 suite. Forms is an easy to use tool that allows users to create engaging forms, surveys and quizzes to distribute with anyone.  One advantage to using Forms is that once you've created it, it's easy to use the same form from semester to semester with minimal tweaking.
