Open educational resources (OER) offer a great way to provide students with high-quality content that’s affordable. But OER usually doesn’t come with built-in tools to keep students engaged.

An open-source approach to student engagement

Hypothesis is a social annotation tool that makes reading collaborative and fun.

Based on open-source technology and encouraging open pedagogical practices, it’s also the perfect complement to OER. Hypothesis adds a social layer to OER, making it more relevant and meaningful for students — and leading to increased engagement and better outcomes.

For a limited time, we’re offering free fall pilots to educators interested in using Hypothesis with OER.
