Two recent articles elaborate on iAnnotate’s usefulness for students and teachers in high school, college, and beyond.
Tracy at iOS Affairs uses iAnnotate to plow through articles in her graduate mental health counseling program. She touts iAnnotate’s ability to perform tasks previously impossible on paper, like voice and photo annotations, custom stamps, and typewriter notes in multiple colors and fonts. Tracy adds “watch for updates from these developers. They’re full of surprises. As soon as I think the app is perfect, they improve it with things I hadn’t even imagined but soon find indispensable.” Well, shucks, Tracy. We like you too.
Kristi Upson-Saia at Occidental College discusses the benefits of iAnnotate for grading assignments. She uses custom stamps like “develop this idea” and “awkward prose” to quickly mark issues throughout the document. She writes more substantive comments at the end of the paper, and refers back to her earlier stamps to provide guidance. For Kristi, this process “saves an inordinate amount of time grading.” Kristi doesn’t say what she does with all this extra time, but it’s safe to assume she’s fighting widespread corruption or nursing wounded animals back to health.
Huge thanks go out to both writers.
