Focus on what matters
The Annoto widget includes all kinds of ways to personalize the way you view the discussion.
The Annoto tour is a quick-few-steps tour in the Annoto widget, to make sure you are familiar with the basics of Annoto - main features and how you can use them to optimize your learning experience.
The tour will automatically appear on the first time you will play a video with Annoto.
You can dismiss the tour window by clicking on the X button, but it is very recommended to finish the tour.
If you accidentally dismissed the tour window, or you want to take the tour again, this can definitely be done!
Simply go to the Annoto menu and click on "Take a tour" to retake it, as you can see in the following images:

Finishing the tour is done once adding a comment in the discussion, or by clicking on the "Add a comment" section.
The Annoto widget has 3 sizes:
This is the discussion bubble icon on the side of the video. It can be positioned on the right or on the left/ up or down, but it is easy to spot, especially if there are already comments in the discussion. In this case, the bubble even presents the number of comments in the discussion.
With the Kuku mode, you see only the comments that are relevant to the moment in the video that you are watching. No distractions!
You can get to the Kuku mode simply by clicking on the Annoto minimize button when the widget is open:
The Annoto widget full mode enables you to view the entire discussion in the video and, of course, to be an active part of it.
You can get to the full mode simply by clicking on the Annoto icon (when the widget is in mini mode) or by clicking on the open button (when the widget is in kuku mode)
Once the widget is open - you are free to place it wherever you want, simply by clicking and dragging it from the menu bar (at the top of the widget)
You can also resize the widget by dragging a corner or a side of the widget
You can sort the discussion to your choice.
