Grading with Voice on an iPad

Using an app called iAnnotate, I could write comments on PDFs but also add voice comments, allowing me to make grading more personal but also add details that I otherwise wouldn’t have included. Most students liked the voice feedback. Some, unprompted, even wrote and thanked me for taking the time to speak to them with the recorded segments. Academics have talked about paperless grading for years. Here on ProfHacker, Jason wrote a couple of years ago about marking up PDFs with iAnnotate and more recently about going paperless with a Mac.
