How to Install the FeedbackPanda Browser Extension
FeedbackPanda already speeds up writing feedback. With our browser extension, it will be even faster. This browser add-on takes care of extracting important student and course information from your online ESL classrooms. It then forwards this information to FeedbackPanda. There it can be used to quickly set up new students or courses. As it uses student and course IDs, it will automatically pull up students and courses you have taught before.
At this moment, the following schools are supported:

Installing the browser extension for Microsoft Edge
Edge users have it easy as well: our extension is listed as FeedbackPanda on the Microsoft Store. To install it, follow these four steps:
Click the blue “Install” button and confirm any permission question if necessary. The extension will start downloading and installing.
Once downloaded and installed, click the blue “Launch” button which will open the Edge browser.
Here, you will be presented with a “You have a new extension” dialog in the top right corner. Click “turn it on” to activate the FeedbackPanda browser extension.
After activating the extension, the familiar panda logo will appear in your address bar. From now on, any supported classroom or feedback page will have the FeedbackPanda button present. All done!
Regarding your Privacy
The browser extension will ask for a certain set of permissions, including access to the data and websites you browse. Your privacy is protected in the following ways:
- The browser extension will only ever run on online ESL websites. It will not run an any non-teaching-related website you visit.
- The browser extension will only ever integrate into the classrooms of the online ESL websites. It will not interfere with any other parts of the teaching experience.
- The browser extension will only ever integrate through adding a standalone button with the FeedbackPanda logo. Only when this button is pressed, will the extension search for Student and Course IDs and adjacent information. That information will then be sent to a new tab, opening the FeedbackPanda dashboard.
- On the FeedbackPanda website, the browser extension will add information to the application that allows our system to assist in browser-extension-related support. No information other than the extension’s presence and version will be communicated.
