In this video tutorial, we will step you through how to make an annotation within an eBook.
How to use the highlighter?
To create an annotation, within the eReader, highlight a word or term and select the ‘Create Annotation’ icon from the learning toolbar that pops up.
From here you can select a highlighter colour and add a note or comment about what you’ve highlighted.
How to share annotations?
All new annotations are set to private by default, where the annotation is only visible to you, but click the eye icon and you can make your annotation visible to an entire cloud, or specific classmates within that Cloud.
If you want to send the annotation only to individual classmates, don’t forget to deselect the cloud, otherwise, it will be shared with your whole class.
Click ‘Add’ to create your annotation.
You can also use the Annotation as a simple highlighter, say for studying, varying colours to identify key study points, by selecting the ‘Annotate’ button and leaving the comment box blank.
How to access annotations?
Access your annotations via the Learning Annotation Thread in the header to engage in a learning discussion – view or make a comment, edit your personal annotations or delete them entirely.
If your annotation is private, keep a record of your thoughts.
If your annotation is public, watch as your classmates or teachers answer your questions or respond to your comments.
Communicate one-to-one, one-to-many or one-to-all.
