Features in Edword Skooler

Library comments
Tired of writing the same feedback comment again and again? Avoid repetitive work by creating library comments and insert with just one click to save valuable time.

Voice comments
Talk to your students directly in Word. In many cases, voice comments are much faster. And the best, to students, audio comments are much more engaging and personal.

Personal comments
Create personal comments if the comment has not been previously saved in the library or when the feedback is not repetitive. Easily save the comments to the library when needed.

Snippets
Comment balloons in Word are not ideal for longer comments. Use Snippets to insert longer explanations, tables, pictures, etc. – either at the cursor position or directly at the end of the document. Mastering this feature will not only be your greatest time-saver, but it will boost the feedback value as well.

Feedback Report
Add the Feedback Report with a sum up text, grade and a detailed overview of the feedback comments in the assignment. The Feedback Report automatically synchronizes the grade and sum-up text with the gradebook in Skooler.

Collaboration
Make collaboration with colleagues easy and improve feedback quality. The sharing function allows you to easily share feedback comments and snippet material with your colleagues, which will save you a ton of time.
