Through the use of social annotation tools, students are able to highlight, take notes, and mark up texts to enhance their learning process. As a class or in small groups, students can open PDFs or web pages, highlight, add comments, and share ideas within the margins. By participating in social annotation, instructors and students have the opportunity to form a digital community of readers

Learn about two different social annotation tools that might be useful in your courses: Perusall and Hypothesis. Both tools support note-taking or critique of classroom readings, news, blogs, scientific articles, books, terms of service, ballot initiatives, legislation, and more. 

Both can be integrated directly into Brightspace and have unique differences that could make one better suited to your teaching needs. Join us to explore these options and discuss accessibility and fair use best practices when implementing a social annotation tool.

This meeting will be recorded and can be distributed upon request if you are unable to attend. For questions, or to be added to the recording list, please contact
