Ideas for Classroom:
-Can be used by a music teacher in the classroom room. A score from a musical work can be uploaded and students can analyze the piece and make notes and comments as they go.
-Can be used by language arts teachers to correct student writing rather then revising and editing constantly.
-Class A.nnotate account so that comments may be made by the teacher and checked by students
-Allow students to use to collaborate on class projects
-Use class account for peer reviewing
- One of the hosted solutions offered on the site is that users can sign up for a free account themselves. After signing up for a free account users can upload documents and then share those documents with others using a link. A teacher could have a small group of students sign up for an individual account and annotate as a group using one email address. After they finish, they can share their link with their teacher. This will allow for collaboration in groups instead of having one account for the whole class.
