Export of Inline Feedback/Annotations

Jump to solution

The feedback preview window needs to be revisited.  Students attempt to view inline comments/feedback on mobile devices (even though I tell them not to), and the things with most learning value for student writers are nigh impossible to see.  How difficult would it be to create a snapshot of the graded document with inline comments overlaid and offer that as a download option?  My students are very frustrated with the current visual presentation and my insistence that feedback is best at point-of-need--where the issue (or good thing!) is happening in their paragraphs, sentences, essays.

Can inline feedback be presented in a larger visual format than the tiny "View Feedback" window, and can it be exported?  Can Canvas, in rendering various file formats for presentation in SpeedGrader, re-render the resulting graded (and inline-commented-on document) so that it can be viewed as a common image file?#viewcomments

Hi  @jenkinsa ‌,

I agree that the process isn't ideal for students and Instructure knows this. In fact, there is a redesign set for early next year. The information about this redesign can be found here: https://community.canvaslms.com/groups/cmug/blog/2018/10/22/mobile-update-fall-2018-edition 

Feel free to comment on that post since it will go directly to the mobile product manager.

Yes, I’m thinking basic visual design of students viewing inline comments/feedback that is more upfront and accessible and that can be exported (hopefully as a widely used file that doesn’t take up a lot of space) in its original location (next to the part of the assignment being commented on).

 @jenkinsa ‌, 

Thanks for sharing a little more. I couldn't agree more. The assignment workflow and feedback inside the Canvas apps are really, really old and I'm excited to see there is now a focus on this. Yet again, I encourage you to leave feedback on the Fall 2018 post so the Mobile PM can read them directly. Thanks.
