The Voting System (Students)
In the Notebook, students are able to rate their own as well as others notes. This allows students to give feedback on eachothers notes without commenting. To do this, one first needs to navigate to the Notebook or a Course Pack and find a note you would like to vote on.
Notice that there are upvote and downvote arrows on the bottom left of every note.
The upward facing arrow is for positive feedback and the downward arrow is for negative feedback. From here, you are able to click on these arrows in order to give feedback to other students.
This can also be done in a Course Pack:
When in the course pack, navigate to the top right of the page and select the arrow icon. This will show you the notes that all students have taken on this page.
From here you are able to click on any one of the notes to expand them.
You can click the arrows when the note is expanded to vote on the note.
