Hi everyone, I’m looking for a piece of advice.
So many students send me their homework, which is hand written,and I find it hard to find a program that I can use to annotate it. When Tutorful had a very helpful download button, I used to go on to the demo classroom, annotate it there, and download it and upload it in the student’s lesson, but without the crucial download button I can’t do it anymore. Does anyone have any tips or programs I can possibly use to be able to annotate students’ work?
Thanks in advance!
Hi Katy! Thanks for another useful post! I would actually love to see what other people do because my method doesn’t always work My method is to open PDF files using Microsoft Edge and then annotate it there but with some PDFs the drawing function is disabled and I have no idea why When it does work, it’s great because you can use different colours and save the annotated version as a separate file. And most of all, it’s free!
I copy the document into Word and using my trusty Wacom tablet to annotate it using the draw function…
I ask for a (very clear) picture of the document which I then turn into a PDF file. I can then annotate using the comments, ticks/crosses and underline features. I use tracked changes for word documents.
I use doc hub for annotating pdfs, it’s not the best but it’s free! I would love to know of a better alternative if anyone else can recommend one.
I first use MS Word to convert the student’s file into a PDF.
I then use a program called “DrawboardPDF” (now free from the MS App Stote) to annotate it. I have an XP-Pen graphics tablet which has a pressure sensitive pen. This helps to emphasis my annotations.
This works reasonably well for me.
I use my phone to annotate it
