Q: Can I annotate on the iPad and other touchscreen devices?
A: Yes, you can annotate on touchscreen devices with the Moxtra Assignment Annotator with some limitations. Moxtra is HTML5 compatible, which means you can view and annotate on the iPad in the web version of PowerSchool Learning but not on the iPad App.
Please note: This feature is only available to School & District Edition accounts at this time.
Limitations on touchscreen devices
You can use annotation features including Draw, Highlighter, Add Text, and Arrow, but you cannot change any of the secondary annotation options including the color, size, or line thickness. For example, while you can annotate with the highlighter, but won't be able to change the color. Adding an image, adding a shape, Undo, and Redo is also supported. Note that selecting a particular tool on touchscreen devices requires a double-tap.
How to use the Annotator on touchscreen devices
- Go to the Assignment area of the Activities tab and choose an Assignment with student submissions.

- Tap the file link on their submission to Annotate and Grade. The Annotator should automatically open if the file is compatible with our annotator tool (.doc, .docx, .ppt, .pptx, .pdf).
4. Once in the annotator, select which tool you want to use, double-tap the icon for that tool, and begin annotating!
