Annotate makes it easy for teachers and students to add personalized, detailed feedback to Google Docs, Canvas SpeedGrader, and other webapps.
Create and share large or small libraries of reusable comments, then quickly add pre-written feedback then personalize. Use full-text search, our toolbars for Google Docs, Canvas, and Blackboard, or right-click menu to find just the right comment.
Annotate optionally logs all of your feedback created in Google Docs and Canvas SpeedGrader so you can review a history of previous comments made to the current student – fantastic for accountability, conferences, and end-of-term report cards.
You can choose to translate your comment into another language (via Google Translate) or provide dual language response (primary language plus a translation) to help students learning a second language.
The forever-free version of Annotate provides you with one library and up to 10 comments.
You can license Annotate PRO individually or as an institution, creating as many libraries as you'd like or using one of our growing list of pre-made libraries.
For instance, the Annotate PRO College Edition, which you can purchase from inside the app or your school can license, brings 100+ pre-written comments a click away. The library covers argument, use of evidence, organization, style, documentation & formatting, and grammar. Many of the comments include links out to the web's best writing resources so students can get additional help.
Institutions can define and share libraries, powering consistency, language instruction, writing across the curriculum initiatives, PBL…
Finally, Annotate PRO will give you visibility into your feedback – summarizing by comment group, by comment, and making it easy to filter by student recipient. You can even use previously created manual comments to improve your library content.
Annotate PRO will dramatically improve the dialog around writing at your school – drafts, peer review, grading…
With Annotate PRO you write it once, to perfection, then re-use to your heart's content.
