The Teaching Centre has integrated Hypothes.is into Moodle. We are running this tool through an educational pilot project until June 2021. Hypothes.is is a tool that allows for collaborative annotation of web-based resources. When integrated into a Moodle course - the students enrolled in the course are automatically signed into this system and able to view their class annotations (as well as add their own). The system is designed to encourage and support critical reading and response to readings within your courses. Hypothes.is can be used with any web-based resource (webpage or PDF). 

This is a TRIAL for a six month term  - there are no guarantees that we will be able to continue to use this service after June 2021.
