Write notes on your work

Classroom’s drawing tools allow you to draw on your assignments. The tools allow you to underline words, highlight text, draw shapes, and leave notes. For example, you can highlight a topic sentence, color a map, sketch a plant cell, or show your work on a math problem.

You can draw on Google Docs, images, PDFs, and Microsoft® Office® documents.

Note: Drawing tools are only available in the Classroom mobile app for Android and iOS®.
