Annotating assignments electronically

Course description

This hands-on workshop will show you how to mark student assignment using annotations (eg. comments, highlighting and audio comments). This workshop will provide an overview of the types of annotation options available:

  • Online annotation (in FLO) (eLearning Gateway)
    Online annotation allows you to annotate the student assignment in your browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer) without having to download and upload assignments.
  • Offline annotation (eLearning Gateway)
    Offline annotation allows you to download all student assignments and annotate (using software such as Word or PDF or marking on a tablet such as an iPad) without being connected to the internet. At a later stage (once you are connected to the internet) you can upload all assignments at once.
    • Marking in Word
    • Marking in PDF
The first hour of this workshop will touch on the features available within the online annotation option and will run through the features within Word and PDF that can be used to annotate student assignments electronically, eg. inserting comments, highlighting text, inserting audio, stamp tools. The following 1/2 hour will be time for you to play and practice and ask the trainer any questions you may have.

This workshop is part of a series of workshops and training material around electronic assignments.
