The Student Notes tool allows students to highlight and make notes about what they read in the body of the course.
The Student Notes tool is available for text, including text in HTML components. However, the tool is currently not available for discussions, exercises, video transcripts, or PDF documents.
Students can access their notes either in the body of the course or on a Notes tab. On the Notes tab, a student can see all the notes that the student has made during the course. It also contains links to the location of the notes in the course content.
For detailed information about the ways students can use student notes, see SFD Student Notes.
The Student Notes tool is disabled by default. You enable or disable student notes on the Advanced Settings page in Studio.
If you disable student notes after students have made notes in your course, students cannot access the notes that they have made.
To enable or disable the Student Notes tool, follow these steps.
