Annotate.co was launched by Textensor Limited in 2014, providing secure PDF document collaboration and review on the web. Used within education, technology, government, marketing and translation, the powerful document annotation service includes workspaces for detailed and secre annotation of a collection of documents related to a specific group of users, such as a class, tutorial group, or a project.
The Annotate Blackboard Plugin allows you to have role-based group discussions of papers uploaded to Blackboard. Students can highlight text, select areas and draw freehand shapes to attach comments to specific parts of the paper. Paper discussion is integrated with the usual Blackboard experience: users view the papers within the interface of the course, and can annotate and reply to notes in place. Automatic login, permission based roles, tagging, viewing restrictions are among many advanced features used to design different learning and teaching workflows.
