Annotation tools

One of the obstacles that we are experiencing in regard to buy-in from our instructors is the lack of annotation tools in Quizzes. Secondary to annotation being an important aspect of reading for understanding, our students (K-8) are required on standardized tests to highlight text to use as evidence in their answers to comprehension and analysis questions. There are a number of really great websites that do this, some with free demo accounts and some with subscription fees. But, they all require setting up class accounts, logins etc. It would be so awesome if we could do all of this through Canvas. None of them, to this point, are set up for use with LTI.

 

How are other districts handling this? Am I missing something?

 

Thanks,
