If you're a student, your instructor may give you NowComment assignments. NowComment lets you discuss and edit documents collaboratively.
Use NowComment through UVaCollab. Just click NowComment on the sidebar of your course's UVaCollab site and follow the instructions. If you don't see NowComment on the sidebar, contact your instructor.
Don't wait until the last minute to tackle your NowComment assignments. Remember, you have to learn the tool before you begin!
If you need to comment on an image, select areas to comment instead of paragraphs or sentences.
Play around with the settings on the top menubar. They enhance how you engage with the document and comments.
If you want comments on your own essay, upload your file to NowComment through UVaCollab.
If you want to comment on your classmate's document, the process is the same as any other document. You can also suggest revisions to their work.
What if I want to use NowComment for independent research or discussions?
You don't have to use NowComment through UVaCollab – create your own account through NowComment.com.
If you want to use NowComment through UVaCollab, first make a collaboration site. Then add NowComment to that site.
