Note that as shown on the text area where you type your feedback, it states: "Please be sure to only comment with helpful feedback. Do not reply with jokes or empty compliments, as you will reduce the student's chances of getting real feedback."

If you aren't sure how to provide useful feedback, then you can use Elodin's unofficial guides for critiquing, which are basically checklists that allow you to structure your feedback in a manner that will help students to understand how to improve their work. He has guides for:

If you do not have the time to do this however, then it's better that you do not comment at all, as doing so makes the system think that the student has received helpful feedback, and reduces their chances of getting further feedback by moving them further down the list (so someone else's work can get a more visible spot).

If you are caught doing this again, your submitting and commenting privileges will be limited.

Sorry about that I will be careful the next time sorry again

The recommendation below is an advertisement. Most of the links here are part of Amazon's affiliate program (unless otherwise stated), which helps support this website. It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something I've used myself. If you're interested, here is a full list.


This is another one of those things that aren't sold through Amazon, so I don't get a commission on it - but it's just too good to leave out. PureRef is a fantastic piece of software that is both Windows and Mac compatible. It's used for collecting reference and compiling them into a moodboard. You can move them around freely, have them automatically arranged, zoom in/out and even scale/flip/rotate images as you please. If needed, you can also add little text notes.

When starting on a project, I'll often open it up and start dragging reference images off the internet onto the board. When I'm done, I'll save out a '.pur' file, which embeds all the images. They can get pretty big, but are way more convenient than hauling around folders full of separate images.

Did I mention you can get it for free? The developer allows you to pay whatever amount you want for it. They recommend $5, but they'll allow you to take it for nothing. Really though, with software this versatile and polished, you really should throw them a few bucks if you pick it up. It's more than worth it.
