I'd like to start this Idea thread to capture the features we want to see as Box View continues building it
Being able to freehand draw on the student submission.
Student and instructor can download annotated document with all comments & markup, with essentially one click. (as opposed to multiple screen caps)
Only took a year and a half...
The fact that we're still waiting for a useable modern annotation system in Box but the CEOs are swanning around claiming how marvellous Bb is shows how disconnected they are with the range of needs of a modern LMS. And they don't even have the courage or knowledge to tell us when we can expect it... Shame on them.
Student and instructor can view in the online interface (as well as download) annotated document with all comments and markup without having to click on each comment separately.
I posted already an idea here:
Provide parity of functionality between new Box view and Crocodoc view
"With the new Box view marking interface some features that were in Crocodoc will not be available, in particular:
- students / staff will not be able to download a PDF of the annotated document, they can only download the original submission (useful for providing an independent record of feedback)
- staff will not be able to use the same annotation features e.g. free drawing (this is particularly useful for STEM subjects who like to draw over student submissions (e.g. formulae / diagram / charts)
To ensure equivalence of experience, particularly in view of the change being made half way through the traditional academic year, moving users over to an interface that misses key features of the previous interface is a suboptimal experience and likely to arouse negative feedback from our users."
"suboptimal experience and likely to arouse negative feedback from our users"...
IOW, they are likely to be lighting torches and sharpening pitchforks...
The torches and pitchforks...that is what I suggested when this hit us (by surprise, I might add) in January!
add comments without having to click the comment button every time,
strikeout or cross out - lets you strike through a word or group of words that should be removed,
ability to print annotations,
choose colors to highlight with and to mark with,
ability to comment and mark on all file types that can be displayed.
Hey Lee - so are you bored of waiting for these basic features in NBV yet? The lack of any timeline for this basic feature set to be integrated in to NBV tells a hell of a story about this project. Such an unprofessional look for Bb and for us.
