Ipad grading

Jump to solution

Last year when I graded on Canvas, I had the ability to write on the assignments when using my iPad.  It was much easier than using my trackpad on the computer.  Will this ever come back?

Some schools had the privilege of being part of the beta testing for SpeedGrader, and that beta window has since closed. However! Based on the comments in ​ (and Update: Option to Use Stylus with Speedgrader on Ipad ) it sounds like the stylus input will return to SpeedGrader shortly!!

 @vcooper ​, are you talking about the Soeedgrader app for the iPad? If so, then have you recently updated it? If you've updated it and are still having the problem I'd contact Canvas Support (Help --> Report a Problem).

Yes. I have it up to date (no updates available). We used to grade in Showbie and when we got Canvas, I did not use it anymore because I had the ability to use a stylus and write on the assignments. My IT guy said no other teacher had that ability, but I loved it. As an english teacher, I write on their work all of the time. I do not like having to use the text box.

Hmm... I'm stumped on this so I'm going to share it with the Canvas Mobile Users​ group to see if they can provide some insight/help o this!

Kristen Lundstrum answered and said I was probably part of the beta group and that stylus grading was coming with the speedgrader update. I am excited.
