Hypothesis is a social annotation tool that is fully integrated with Canvas. Using Hypothesis, instructors can make PDFs and websites annotatable. Students can annotate course readings collaboratively, sharing comments and replying to peer’s comments. Instructors can also create annotation assignments. Through Hypothesis-enabled assignments, students submit their annotations for feedback and grading in Canvas.
Topics addressed in this workshop include:
Exploring successful strategies for using Hypothesis as a social annotation tool
Creating a Hypothesis-enabled assignment
Ensuring PDF materials contain digital text (optical character recognized)
