Comment Library for Canvas Teacher App

Comment Library for Canvas Teacher App

0 Kudos
(9)
This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas

With the addition of the Comment Library in Speedgrader, it would be amazing to have access to the same collection of frequently used comments while grading using the Canvas Teacher app. This addition would help all graders who use a variety of devices to provide feedback to learners!

I love the library as a tool, but for now, those using Canvas Teacher app will continue to rely on copy/paste from another document, and that's an extra step on a smaller screen. I think that having the library available would be a huge benefit as graders share frequently used comments.

I have teachers that absolutely LOVE using the Teacher App for grading.   Having this awesome feature added to the app would be amazing.

I agree that the Comment Library would be amazing to have in the Canvas Teacher App.  It's so much easier to grade in the Canvas Teacher App using the annotation tools in Canvas when I grade uploaded handwritten math assignments on my iPad rather than my computer.  But I still want to leave a general comment so students will see that overall comment in their Grades or get notifications of the comment, which then triggers them to review my annotations on their submission.  If I could just save that in the Comment Library rather than either typing it each time or copy and pasting it from somewhere, that would be much more efficient with my grading time.
