Appalachian State has recently signed onto a pilot project with Hypothesis that will run through fall 2020. Depending on faculty feedback, the product may be adopted after the fall 2020 term.
Hypothesis allows for collaborative annotation down to the sentence level on online documents such as websites, PDFs hosted on websites, or scholarly databases. Students can label their annotations with tags and reply to each other’s annotations. Annotations can be public, private, or shared with members of a group, such as among class members.
Here are some links to help you get started.
