Hypothesis is a social annotation tool installed directly in your learning management system (LMS). Adding Hypothesis to readings in your LMS supports student success by placing active discussion right on top of course readings, enabling students and teachers to add comments and start conversations in the margins of texts.

To learn more about making reading active, visible, and social using Hypothesis, please join us in one of our upcoming workshops. RSVP via one of the links below.

Activating annotation with Hypothesis

The Hypothesis team will share how teachers are using annotation-powered reading to help students develop foundational academic skills like deep reading and persuasive writing. In addition to sharing pedagogical best practices for social annotation, we will demonstrate how Hypothesis is used with course readings in your LMS. Participants will gain a clear understanding of how to start incorporating social annotation into their courses to improve student outcomes. These sessions are great introductions to using Hypothesis and social annotation in your courses. (30 minutes)
