Annotate PRO for Google Chrome
Annotate for Google Chrome is a simple (but mighty!) extension for Google Chrome that makes it easy to give personalized, detailed feedback to students on their work.
Annotate installs into your Chrome browser in seconds through the Google Chrome Store.
With one click you’ll be able to give targeted feedback on a particular issue, often including a link out to additional resources. In a split second you’ll help students by providing detailed feedback and wow them with your personal attention.
Of course you can edit comments and their labels; Annotate PRO is free (forever) with 10 slots you can change to suit your needs. You can choose to install the full College Edition Library, which adds 100+ pre-written comments plus 70 empty slots to extend Annotate to better suit your needs.

Wow, I wish I had found this even sooner. With working with doctoral students, and trying to provide mountains of feedback, I need all the help I can get and this tool is exactly the thing I was looking for. I am also recommending the Writer’s Toolkit to all of my students.Dr. Kaye Shelton
What I like best about Annotate is that it allows me to customize the program to reflect my own voice and style. I also love the fact that it allows me to draft quite lengthy comments, all the better to explain complex or multi-step concepts to my students.Lisa T. McElroy
