While an app is not required to use Google Classroom, the iOS and Android apps have an ability that the web version does not: markup tools. A teacher can use a finger or a stylus to add colorful annotations, handwriting, and highlighting. These markup tools are helpful for providing feedback, especially when it comes to inserting suggestions, editing marks, and other annotations. To access the markup tools, the teacher first opens an assignment to view student work. When a document is selected, a preview is shown. Tapping the pencil icon will open a copy of the students’ document and a set of tools are available at the bottom of the screen. When done, a copy is saved as a PDF or image file with “Edited” added to the file’s name. The student can view the annotated copy by opening the assignment in the Google Classroom app or on the web.
