Reading alongside and interacting with each other using Hypothesis is about as close to a seminar-style experience as they can have online.” – Hypothes.is

Hypothes.is an online tool that works inside of iLearn. It allows students to use social annotations on websites and PDFs shared by their teacher. Students can annotate through text, images and inserting video. Discussions can be had. Thoughts can be shared. Questions can be asked and answered.

Interested in getting your students into online annotation? Hypothes.is is offering a free webinar tomorrow, Wednesday, March 25th.
