Lecturers can use the built-in annotation toolbar in Assignments to provide contextual feedback with highlighting, free hand drawing, shapes, and associated commenting. This allows them to complete all their evaluation and feedback work directly in Assignments, without the need to use any external tools or applications. Annotations remain editable until the feedback is published by the lecturer. If additional feedback needs to be added after publishing, annotations can simply be updated and re-published. The main features of the annotations toolbar are highlighted below. Click on the picture for full screen view.
The features available in the annotations Toolbar are:
- Highlighting, Drawing & Erasing
- Notes & Text
- Drawing Shapes
Selected settings will be kept until a new setting selection is made.
