Bring the classroom to any web page or PDF document using the Hypothes.is annotation tool. Students and teachers can ask questions, make comments and have threaded conversations in the margins of their course readings, transforming course texts into dynamic social spaces for discussion and collaboration.
Our Canvas app activates the Hypothes.is annotation tool on public web pages or PDF files uploaded to a course. Students can read and annotate these documents publicly, in groups, or privately, without ever leaving Canvas.
Students can also use the Hypothes.is Canvas app to submit their annotation “sets” from readings as assignments and teachers can grade and offer feedback on these submissions in Speed Grader.
