Here are just a few examples of how much time a text expander tool can save you in your daily life as a teacher. 

 

 

 

Cengage doesn't make text expander tools - this is a tool I like to use on a daily basis.  Here's a couple links if you want to learn more about these tools:

 

Mac: TextExpanderhttps://textexpander.com/

PC: PhraseExpresshttp://www.phraseexpress.com/

PC: Clip.vu - thanks to @mike_lafreniere for this suggestion!

Nice share, Michael!  I'm going to check it out.  I use the following to keep track of all I copy into the Clipboard.

Mike,

 

Right - you're using a clipboard manager for that task. I use a program called CopyPaste Pro and, like a Text Expander, I find this tool invaluable. Click here to see my episode on how clipboard managers work.
