The Chrome Extension Marker.to gives you the ability to annotate and send your webpages to others. Simply highlight text on a webpage (using a yellow highlighter), click on the Marker.to extension icon to highlight your text, and send the text to someone else via social media or a link. The other person does not need the extension installed or even use the Chrome browser to see what you highlighted!
How does it work?
Watch my brief video below:
This is a great tool for students and teachers alike. Someone using this tool can find and highlight valuable information on the Internet without the need for special software, apps, or extensions!
I also like the fact that you can keep analytical information (the number of clicks) to your link. This is a great way to keep your students accountable - if you are sending them information and want them to check out a highlighted webpage that you created. You can do this by clicking on the My Markers link on the Marker.to webpage.
