Available Comment Libraries
Annotate PRO’s is a repository of expert feedback – across multiple disciplines. We author content in areas where we have expertise, partner with experts to provide additional domains, and provide you with the tools to create your own. What expert feedback could you create? Or in partnership with colleagues at your institution?

Institutional clients can create and share their own Libraries of comments, to bring consistency and experiential professional development to a writing across the curriculum initiative, for instance.
The Discussion Moderator and Motivation Station libraries are forever free for all individual teachers. Other libraries can be licensed individually or as part of an AP+ or institutional subscription.

The GHE is a compact Library of fifteen comments divided into two groups. The grammar group contains comments about ten of the most common grammar mistakes that students make: run-on sentences, comma issues, sentence fragments, etc. Many of the comments include links to references from our free, ad-free academic 11Guide.
Praise is an essential component of constructive criticism. That’s why we’ve also included a group of five praise comments. They’re easy to find as they all are labeled with a +.

School Resources Edition - expert knowledge on navigating your school
Instructors are often the front line for questions from students on policies, events, resources. SRE is a solution customized for your institution that makes it easy to centrally manage a knowledgebase of answers so your faculty (and staff) can quickly search and respond. Need to know the Writing Center hours or URL? Or get the policy on exam accomodations? Without SRE students are often sent on wild goose chases. With SRE, teachers and staff can quickly insert relevant, accurate information into personalized messages. Result? Happier students and higher engagement.
Institutions can create their own School Resources Edition library to share with their faculty or take advantage of our SRE service and have us create one for you.
