Providing context, reasoning, and guidance is what teaching is all about. Mimir Classroom allows instructors to provide contextual feedback on assignment submissions immediately or when grades are released. Choose between "Save Comment" and "Send Now" when reviewing an assignment question. You will be able to use basic markdown syntax.
The "Save Comment" button will add the comments to a messaging service that bundles them up and delivers them when you select to release the grades, that way you can start grading earlier without having to wait for late days or extensions.
The "Send Now" button sends the comment immediately to the student, who is then notified via email. This is especially useful if students request feedback while they're working on the assignment or if you would like them to act upon that feedback before grading.
