Save webpages, annotate, share research with peers with added student edition features


Scrible is a browser plug-in for saving, commenting on, and annotating articles found on the web. Students use Scrible to take notes on online articles right from the webpage, create citations, save bibliographies, and integrate their work to Google Docs. Teachers organize students by groups, curate a classroom library of student annotations, and sync with Google Classroom. Scrible offers a free basic version and a paid premium version.


Students begin using Scrible by creating an account or signing in using a classroom code provided by their teacher. Once they have an account, they download the Scrible browser plug in and search the web for articles about any topic of interest. The Scrible toolbar will appear as they read. Students can select the ‘Citation’ icon from the toolbar, and Scrible will generate a citation in the student's’ desired citation format-- MLA, APA, etc. All student annotations will automatically save to their ‘My Library’ dashboard on their Scrible account. Students also create bibliographies by logging in online to their account and going to their ‘My Library’ dashboard. Here, articles they have added, read, or been assigned to read by the teacher will appear. Students select which readings they wish to be on their bibliography and then select the ‘Create Bibliography’ button. Students an integrate their annotations, citations, and bibliographies into Google Docs. Within Google Docs, a Scrible dashboard will appear next to the working documents. Students can type in search words or browse their library for annotations, and select to import them right into their Google Doc.

Teachers begin using Scrible by logging in and creating an account. Once logged in, they enter in all student information and organize it by classes or input class and section information from Google Classroom. For each class, teachers receive a class code which they distribute to students via email. Student work from that class gets added to the ‘Class Library’ dashboard, where all enrolled students can view others’ articles and annotations. If upgraded to the premium addition, teachers can create, assign, and view research projects for students. In this version, they also have access to Scrible- generated graphics that report student progress.


A basic version is available for students for free. A premium version for elementary and high school students costs $10.00 per year. The premium version for college and graduate school students costs $28.00 per year. Entire school subscriptions costs $1,000 per year.

These new assignment types will have their own novel types of trackable goals. Also, teachers, school leaders (e.g. principals) and district administrators will have access to a variety of class-level and student-level analytics that provide visibility into students' research/writing behavior, allowing teachers, school leaders (e.g. principals) and district administrators to see which students are struggling and where in the process they're stuck. This enables focus on students who need the most help and supports personalized learning.
