A quick note or a stroke of genius – share it with a comment ✍️

Leaving a comment in Showbie is the same process no matter what device you’re using and where you are in Showbie. Be it in an assignment, class discussion, or group, you’ll be greeted with the same steps each time.

Leaving a Comment

  • To start, go to any assignment and open Shared Items or any student (you can also go to any Class Discussion or any Group)

  • Tap on the speech bubble that says write a comment… and begin typing your comment

  • When you have something typed up, the Post button will turn blue and you can tap on it once you’re ready to upload your comment!

Want to post a link?

Simply post a URL like showbie.com into your comment to share it in Showbie!

Formatting Comments

Comments can be formatted using the Markdown feature! This allows you to format your posts using simple symbols.

  • To bold text in a post, surround the text with double asterisks: **Example**.

  • To italicize text in a post, surround the text with single asterisks or underscores: *Example* or _example_.

  • To create bulleted lists in your post, use asterisks (*), plus signs (+), or hyphens (-) followed by a space!

  • To create numbered lists, use numbers followed by a period and a space.

*Note that you won't be able to see the text formatting until you won’t be previewed when creating the comment, but will format once the comment is actually posted.

More Actions

There’s more you can do with comments! To see additional options for comments, tap and hold on the comment on the iPad or click on the dropdown arrow on the web.

Be careful when deleting comments as it is a permanent action and they cannot be restored.

On iPad, you can Copy, Pin, Edit, or Delete the comment and use the Speak feature to have the comment read out loud.
