Just wanted to show you this update on SpeedGrader Annotations:
Yup! It will be an update both to SpeedGrader and Canvas - the former for the teacher to mark up submissions, and the latter for students to view those annotations that the teacher wrote, with the added ability to reply back.
It simply replaces the submission preview, with lots of added features. I've attached a screenshot of annotations in action. (Ignore the terrible test document I had uploaded to write on )
You will notice that all the other features are largely the same, such as the rubric drawer still being accessible, just with the added annotations menu. That menu will be able to be repositioned wherever you like. In the menu, on the second item (the pencil), you will notice a little arrow. If you tap and hold, other options come up as a tooltip, such as circles, squares, etc.
