The SOLE Annotator tool provides document previews that can be annotated using the built-in commenting, highlighting, and drawing tools. The Annotator can be used by students to take notes on documents posted within Course Content while instructors can utilize it in congruence with the Detailed Grader to provide detailed annotations on submitted Assignments.
The Annotator’s document viewer supports Word, Excel, PDF and PowerPoint file types. The maximum file size that will convert to a preview in the Annotator is 100 MB. Files larger than this cannot be previewed and must be downloaded to view.
Since the Annotator tool generates a preview of the document, a user must download the document for access to the file in its original format or utilize any embedded options such as links and audio.
