Collaborative Annotation with Hypothes.is

Hypothes.is is a collaborative annotation tool that is available inside Moodle. Hypothes.is facilitates online discussions around websites and PDFs. Collaborative annotation is an effective methodology that increases student participation, expands reading comprehension, and builds critical-thinking skills and community in class. Annotating together makes reading visible, active, and social, enabling students to engage with their texts, teachers, ideas, and each other in deeper, more meaningful ways.

Elon is piloting Hypothes.is this fall. You can add it to your Moodle course by following these directions. If you decide to use Hypothes.is this fall, please email Ben Tupper so you can be informed of any upcoming training opportunities and to provide feedback on your experience.

Important note: Hypothes.is in Moodle works with most webpages and publicly available PDFs. If a PDF is not publicly available, you'll need to download a copy of it and save it to a Google Drive folder. Hypothes.is is developing a way to use a PDF in your Moodle course, but it is not yet available.
