In Converge 3.0, students are now able to annotate any document in order to submit their assignment. This enables teachers to utilize any sort of worksheet, but keep it all online and in one place.
When an instructor has uploaded a PDF file as part of an assignment, students are now able to open the PDF and annotate right over it, and all within Converge. Students can submit these changes as their assignment, and teachers will be able to see these annotations when grading. These instructions detail how to annotate a PDF as a student, as well as how to add a PDF to an assignment as an instructor.

Student PDF Annotation
