The documents the class has annotated with Hypothes.is are diverse, ranging from book chapters and published articles, to websites and video transcripts, to even their class syllabus. “Annotating the syllabus allows students to add comments and questions to the course plan,” Gould said. “Annotating the syllabus live, in-class gives us an opportunity to openly discuss any confusing bits, and it opens conversation about particular aspects of the class. Students can add values statements and clarifying points to the inclusion statement, for instance, or ask questions about the collaborative grading system.”
