Most Hypothesis readings in Canvas now have compatibility with Canvas’ Course Import tool. If your Assignment or Module was created using a publicly-accessible URL or a PDF stored in Google Drive then the reading should work properly when copied into another Canvas Section or Course.

If your Assignment or Module was created using a PDF from Canvas Files, while Canvas will copy the reading for you, they do not change which file the reading looks at. Therefore the new reading will continue to look for the old version of the file that resides in the old course. Hypothesis currently shows students and instructors an error message when this happens.

If you are teaching with Hypothesis and have copied Hypothesis-enabled readings that use PDFs in Canvas Files, please follow the steps below.

For Assignments:

After you have imported content from your other course site, follow the steps in this article for each Hypothesis-enabled Assignment that has been imported.

For Module Items:

Module Items will need to be deleted and re-created. Please see our help article for instructions on creating Hypothesis-enabled Module Items.
