Tools like Hypothesis or NowComment can allow students to take notes on the open web, including on news websites, PDFs, and open-source full-length books.

Fortunately, new tools are emerging to support the switch to more affordable and accessible digital resources. Highlighting apps and browser extensions, like, Diigo or Weava, let you mark up the web as though it were a page in a book. Returning to a marked page brings back your highlights and notes. Many of these support private, group and public commenting.
