Overview

The annotation tool provides teachers and students with the ability to markup and critique images & videos. This makes for an interactive experience between the instructor and students, allowing students to get feedback quicker and online. Students may also annotate and critique the work of their fellow classmates, promoting social and inclusive learning via media-based student to student interaction.

These updated video and image annotations will be enabled automatically for all courses on December 19, 2022. Instructors may enable these features prior to this date in the Course Settings section of Harmonize.
