Student Annotations

Seguir

An important 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, they 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 doable as the annotation ability is there for teachers.

Currently we are using a third party app for annotations and could then cut out a step in the workflow. We use notability. Another option would be to have a notability app widget similar to the drive widget that would allow students to move things back and forth.

    This would be incredibly helpful, and has been frequently requested at our site! Please add student annotations to pdf/documents within the student iOS App.

    agreed!  It shouldn't be that difficult to open this up to students since you already have it available to teachers!

    Absolutely agree.  This is so important.  We are 1:1 and currently using a 3rd party app to annotate.  Sometimes Schoology does communicate with our 3rd party apps well.  Please do this as quickly as possible.

    There are at least FOUR threads on this topic.  Please!  Our students use annotation on almost all of their work (PDFs) in Google Classroom on mobile devices.  Students not being able to annotate in Schoology is a big obstacle in our discussions about moving to Schoology from G-Classroom.  Teachers can annotate, so student annotation seems like a quick fix.  The only obstacle I see is the inability to distinguish student annotations from teacher annotations.  Don't make this stop you from implementing.  We'll figure it out...  The sooner the better!

    WOW! Love all the support for this option, since 2014, too! Here's some more reasons it would be good:

    If students only stay within the Schoology app, then I can use my AppleClassroom app to "lock" them in while they take a PDF quiz and know they can't look at their notes, which they would be able to do now since they currently have to use Notability (where their notes are...)

    If they can see all the questions at once, then they can actually practice the "use the test to take the test" strategy! 

    I would really love to stop making copies. I had a paperless classroom last year when our district had a different LMS.

    I guess ask the other teachers in your school to upvote this idea too to give it more power.
