Meet Our 2017 Sponsors
It is our great pleasure to introduce you to our sponsors for the 2017 Conference:
Annotate.co was launched by Textensor Limited in 2014, providing secure PDF document collaboration and review on the web. Used among education, technology, government, marketing and translation the powerful document annotation service includes Workspaces for detailed and secure 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 in formats including PDFs, MS Office documents, and images. Students can highlight text, select areas and draw freehand shapes to attach comments to specific passages of a paper, and other students and tutors in the group can reply to notes to have an in- context discussion. Paper discussion activity is integrated with the usual Blackboard experience: users view the papers in an iframe of the course, and can annotate and reply to notes in place. Automatic register and login, permission based roles, tagging, viewing restrictions are among many advanced features used to design different learning and teaching workflows. Future roadmap includes AV annotation, activity based reporting including document usage heatmaps and further improvements enhancing student-teacher interaction.
