Annotate: Web Annotations with Screen Sharing


Freely annotate web pages and Google Slides content when presenting. Keep your audience engaged with live annotations during your remote learning and Google Meet sessions.

With new and improved compatibility with Google Slides, we track annotations for every slide in both edit and present modes so your annotations remain in sync as you navigate across slides. Tight integration with Google Slides enables you to switch between Google Slides controls/ menus and annotation tools seamlessly. Our annotations are smooth, fast, and anchored in place as you zoom and navigate, making your content look professional and engaging.

Save your annotations in your account for review later. Share them with others or come back and continue working from where you left off. Capture screenshots of marked up pages and insert them directly into your Annotate notebook. All this as you share¹ your entire screen, an application, or just a single Chrome tab with a projector² and multiple student devices.

The plugin works seamlessly with your instructor account to enable annotations over web pages and screen sharing¹ during LiveStreams. When installed on classroom devices, you can empower students to take an active role in their learning by giving them the ability to annotate web pages and share their screens using the “Pass Control” feature.

Teachers, students, and Google Meet users shall be able to:
• Freely annotate web pages and Google Slides using the pen and highlighter tools³.
