Student Annotations

Follow

A nice feature addition would be the ability to annotate pdf/documents within the student app similar to how teachers can mark up student work in the app. Teachers could then post handouts/documents for the students, students could open them in the app (as they can currently) and then they could annotate and save their marked copy to either their own resources or submit back to an assignment. It would seem this would be possible as the annotation ability is currently there for teachers.

    Is there any news on this possible update? This is a key feature we are currently looking for. Thank you.

    YES! This feature would be amazing for iPad use. Schoology, please add this to your iOS App soon.

    I think this would be awesome. I actually think that after some sort of Assignment list functionality, this would be the most useful!

    I believe that the app Notability allows this to happen quite easily.

    The OP is referring to not having to download attachments, and just opening them within schoology to annotate. All of my students have notability, and you can certainly do some amazing things, but the basic function of writing answers into a pdf without a 3rd party app is what the OP is talking about.

    Keeping annotation within the Schoology iPad App would be the use-case I vote for. Numerous other apps do allow for that functionality, but allowing a student to remain in the course would definitely have benefits for authenticity.

    I would love this. I could assign students an assignment to find and correct the errors. The annotation feature would enable them to show me they know why the mistake exists.

    Please make this happen.

    An excellent idea. This would be a game changer with the iPads!

    I would love to see this. It will make Schoology a complete paperless system. I use Notability at the moment, however it would be more efficient if Schoology added this function.

    Wonderful idea! My students use Notability on their iPads, but having it all stay within Schoology would be a game-changer.

    This needs to a high priority. Please look into adding this.

    Our Math teachers would also like this feature added to tests in Schoology as well. We use iPads and like notability as well, and this feature would be very helpful. It would be much faster and easier for students to annotate when it comes to math problems then type text into a box and/or attach a photo from another app. As several others have said before...this should be high on your priority list especially for those of us using the iOS app. Thank you.

    If this were an available option on the web based version as well, it would be invaluable !!

    I agree 100%. This is the ONLY thing that Google Classroom has on Schoology.

    We are a Google School and this feature would be phenomenal.

    I would like to "lock" my students in Schoology while I watch them take a PDF assessment using Apple Classroom. If they open it in another app, then they can share the assessment to cheat. If they can see the test all at once, then they can "use the test to take the test.
