A tool to emphasize certain text in an eTextbook and other pieces of content that have text that can be selected with the mouse.
To highlight text, place your mouse where you would like to begin the highlight and then click and drag to the desired end. Once you release the mouse button, a window appears that allows you to select a color for your highlight. You can also use this window to add a note to the highlight.
If you are using the Alongside solution to use Courseload together with your screen reader or other assistive technology, you can cite text when you create a note. The cited text is similar to highlighted text in that it appears together with your note or question. To cite text, copy it from the file you're reading and paste it into the Add cited material field when you create a note.
