Hypothesis in Canvas: Collaborative Annotation as Discussion Forum 2.0

Let's be honest, discussion forums are a great idea—we all want students to engage more with their assigned readings and with their classmates. But “discussion” forums fail at precisely what they claim to do: cultivate quality conversation. Collaborative annotation assignments are a better way to encourage students to engage more deeply with course content and with each other. Using Hypothesis, instructors can make PDFs and web pages hosted in Canvas annotatable. You may have missed our live webinar on 4 April 2017, but you can watch the recording and view the slides to learn more about the pedagogical value of collaborative annotation and be given a guided tour in setting up and using the Hypothesis tool in Canvas.
