With all the time students and teachers are spending with iPads, Turnitin Feedback Studio‘s new iPad app is a welcome addition to their toolkits. Students can submit papers, analyze similarity reports (to check for originality), and review instructor feedback on the go. Here’s what Jacinta Lujano, attending Naval Postgraduate School, says:
“Feedback Studio for iPad makes it really simple to submit my writings and to get on-the-go feedback… It’s really simple and intuitive to use, too. I love it.”
For educators, the interface is cleaner and the process to view accounts and classes simplified, including streamlined grading on- and offline. According to Cheryl Ashbaugh, communications professor at Robert Morris University:
“I can grade papers anywhere I want on my tablet with the Turnitin Feedback Studio app. Not having to carry so much around with me has been great for my back!”
Key features include:
- Free app for students: Students can now submit and view assignments from their iPad and then view Similarity Reports, instructor feedback, and grades.
- Updated interface: An updated interface for instructors makes feedback easier to give and review with cleaner, clutter-free screens.
- Offline grading: Assignments can by synced between iPad app and desktop grading on- or offline.
More information and a live demo of Feedback Studio for iPad will be presented at a webcast on September 29, 2016 at 3:00pm PST. Register for the webcast, “No Feedback Left Behind: Feedback Studio for iPad.”
