To enter the edit mode, simply click on the three dots in the top right corner (next to the focus mode button).

Setting up

After entering the edit mode, you see two options in the top right corner. When you click Help with setting up, a link to our help center and a link to our support chat will be shown. Also, the instructional video about Comprehension of Documents will show. The option Use copy of existing offers you the possibility to copy another, previous assignment and its instructions and settings. This could save you some time when setting up your assignment. 


In step 2 you are able to determine which topics in the text are important for your students to pay attention to. In this step you have the option to change topics and decide if you want to allow students to view others. When this is on, students are able to see each others activity in the document.

When you press change topics, the following screen will appear. It looks similar to the criteria screen in other tools. However, in this case these are not criteria but topics to guide your students. You can decide the required number of annotations and if you want students to write a short summary on the assigned topics. Press add topic to include more topics. 

Upload document 

After determining the topics, you can add a file. Under settings, it is possible to disable downloading of material due to copyright reasons.
