This explains how to create a Hypothesis-enabled reading assignment. The app allows you to share a webpage or PDF document with the Hypothesis sidebar automatically added within the LMS. If you have not installed Hypothesis in Schoology yet, see our guide for instructors who are installing Hypothesis in a Schoology course.

1. Place the tool in an assignment

The teacher needs to add the external tool to their Course where they want it.

Within the assignment:

 

 

Tool will appear at the bottom of the assignment directions. Double-click to access the tool:

2. Select a reading

Open the Assignment in order to select a reading to add.

A. Enter a Public URL for a document

This can be a public web page or a PDF hosted at a public website. The URL is public in that it cannot require any kind of login by a user.

To be annotatable by Hypothesis, PDFs must have optically recognizable text. If you can select text in the doc, then it does.

B. Use a PDF file from Google Drive through Google Picker

Technically, this process will generate a public URL for the document. In practice, this is a secret URL that will not be shared with anyone outside your course and cannot be easily discovered.

Authorize a Google account

Select (or Upload) a file.

Again, note that you can upload a PDF to Google Drive via the Google Picker workflow.

To be annotatable by Hypothesis, PDFs must have optically recognizable text. If you can select text in the doc, then it does.
