PDF Annotations

Any PDF in your resource list can be annotated by the instructor and students in your class. 

Students and Faculty can make notes, highlight or draw shapes around content in the PDF, and search within notes. Public notes allow others to read and respond to other annotations.

Private and Public Annotations

As the instructor, for each citation on your reading list with an attached PDF, you can choose to enable or disable public annotations. To view the PDF and annotate it, click "View".

Longevity of Annotations

Annotations are connected to a specific course. So if you reuse your reading list again in a future course, old annotations will not be retained.
