Teachers can grade assignments in Canvas without downloading documents
Instructure, the company that builds the Canvas learning platform, has simplified the grading process with its SpeedGrader, which automatically converts student assignments into a format viewable in a browser window. Within the same window, teachers can also annotate and grade assignments without downloading documents.
"One of our primary goals in building Canvas is to make everyday tasks easier for teachers and students," said Brian Whitmer, Instructure's chief product officer. "The document viewer in SpeedGrader gets technology out of the way and allows teachers to focus on their students."
