Key Features

Smart Annotation can be used as a stand alone tool or can be integrated seamlessly with Smart Assessor. This means that you only need to log in once and can easily digitally mark evidence, creating a smoother learning journey for both you and the apprentice.

Choice of File Type

Learners can upload various file types of work to Smart Annotation to be reviewed, including:-

PDF | Microsoft | Image | Video

Create Feedback

Feedback and comments are directly tagged to the relevant part of the file you are reviewing, you don’t need to search for them afterwards.

You can continue to make as many comments throughout the work, also inviting others to add their feedback too.

Each comment is tracked to the relevant author.

Feedback on Videos

Digitally mark and feedback learner’s videos by pausing at any time and adding a comment, voice note or shape.

The learner can then click the mark to see changes left by a reviewer on the timeline underneath.

Use Your Voice

Struggling to explain something in text? Use the dynamic voice note option to record the feedback directly onto the evidence.

Recording your voice makes it quicker and clearer to explain your feedback and avoids lengthy comment boxes.

Get Drawing with the Shape Tool

Adding feedback to an image has never been easier, with the ability to draw shapes over a learner’s uploaded file.

A great way of editing images, draw a shape over the image to highlight the part requiring feedback and allow learners to easily identify areas for improvement.

Highlight Feedback

Once the feedback is entered onto the evidence, a note appears in the highlighted box to the side, to help learners see clearly what has been reviewed.

Learners can click each note to view/listen to the comments and alter their work to improve their work.

If multiple reviewers have given feedback, learners can click to view all, view only one Assessors feedback, or review the notes in date given order.
