Hypothesis an open annotation tool that allows users to collaboratively annotate, highlight, and tag web pages and .pdfs. We’re happy to share that the OpenLab now has the Hypothesis plugin as well as the Hypothesis aggregator plugin. Created for open peer review, Hypothesis has many uses for teaching and learning and it is an important tool for OERs. The chief use for Hypothesis is for students to collectively annotate a shared assigned reading. Rather than blogging in response to an entire reading, students can respond to a specific piece of the reading and, in turn, respond to their classmate’s comments. Students can also use it to give feedback to their instructor on the OER they are using.
