Adding the Annotation tool in Content for Student Use?

The Annotation tools available to instructors when marking up Assignments are great - love them!

Is there any plan to add these features to the Content tool, for use by Students? That way, they could highlight text and make notes about key concepts inline, in context.

I looked in the Roadmap and the PIE but didn't see any discussion of this idea, but perhaps I missed it.

If this isn't a part of the roadmap, does anyone use a 3rd-party solution of any kind?

    Hi @Brock.P.633 ,

    Thank you for reaching Brightspace Community!

    This is a great idea, fortunately there is a PIE item (D10273) that is requesting the same . I would recommend upvoting the idea for further consideration by our Product planning team.

    Hope this helps!

    Hi! I had searched for "annotate content" and "annotation content," but this idea you referenced didn't return as a result? Not sure what I did wrong there, but thanks for sharing!

    I've upvoted it now :)
