University of Minnesota faculty Bodong Chen describes the role Hypothesis annotation played in his experiments to incorporate collaboration in a graduate course: In this design case, an instructor architected a digital learning environment to facilitate collaborative discourse in an online graduate-level class. Given traditional Learning Management Systems offer uninspiring support for dynamic social interactions, the designed environment harnessed emerging technologies in open textbooks, web annotation and team communication to foster a collaborative learner discourse that was dynamic, distributed, and coherent. The purpose of this paper is to describe the designed digital environment, as well as key design decisions leading to the designed environment.
