Review: Hypothes.is

Hypothes.is is a web tool that allows users to annotate online text and webpages. After registering with the Hypothes.is and logging in, users next need to paste the address of the website they wish to annotate into the box. Hypothes.is then loads the website in its shell. To annotate the website, users must first select text with their mouse, and then they can choose to highlight the text in color and/or annotate it. The “Highlight” option places a color overlay on the text, so it stands out when users view the website. The “Annotate” option allows users to add notes, images, stylized text, links, and tags in the margin next to the selected text.
