Instructors can provide feedback directly in Word and PDF documents submitted to a Submission folder using the annotation tool. Once the annotations are published, students will be able to view them within the document they submitted and see any additional feedback or score left in the submission.
Note: There is currently an issue with the Annotations viewer which causes some formatting to be rendered incorrectly. To work around this issue, download the student's file to view it natively. To ensure that all formatting is preserved correctly, it is recommended to have students submit PDF files.
Note: If an image file has been submitted, the only annotation actions available are Note, Pen, and Eraser.
