Get to grips with Journal

Mar 12, 2018 | Education

If you’ve been making use of Snapplify’s full suite of e-reading and e-learning solutions, you’ll know just how nifty Journal can be.

With Snapplify’s Journal, you can make in-text annotations, which you can easily access later. Here, you’ll find all your notes and highlights in one place! Teachers can also add notes and highlights to every student’s ebook. As a study resource, Journal allows users to revise and engage with key sections of text, saving time and making learning easier.

We developed this collaborative feature so that educators could continue to engage with students outside the classroom. Whether you’re adding a note with additional material (e.g. a link to a video explaining more on the topic) or a comment (e.g. ‘Study this section before next week’s test’), this handy tool gives you the power to share more with your students as they study.

To view your Journal for a particular book:

  1.  Open the book that you would like to refer to.
  2.  Tap on the ‘Book’ icon at the top of your screen, and then select ‘Annotations’.
  3.  To the bottom left of the drop-down menu under ‘Annotations’, you will see a list icon. Tap on this icon to open up the full list of notes and highlights in Journal view. Journal will show you all of your annotations and comments in full, in a reader-friendly list view.

To find out how you can start using Journal, or if you’d like to arrange a meeting with one of our friendly education team members in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban, Nairobi or Mombasa, let us know by emailing
