Indianapolis, IN—August 9, 2019. Please join us on Thursday, September 12th at 2:30PM ET for a joint session on Hypothesis.
Have you ever wanted to have an easy way to know if your students are actually reading what you assign? Have you ever wanted to connect with students directly to focus on key parts of a reading? To share what you think is important? To learn about the connections they make and the questions they have? To help them engage with each other? Collaborative annotation with Hypothesis can make student reading visible, active, and social.
Join our free webinar, 2:30pm–3:30pm ET on Thursday September 12, 2019, focusing on the simple steps to start using collaborative annotation in your class in Moodle with Hypothesis, the organization that brought the world open-source, standards-based annotation and runs the largest service of its kind. More than 250,000 people are already using Hypothesis to annotate online, and together they have made over 6.3 million annotations on about 650,000 different documents, including textbooks, scholarly articles, public websites, and OER published on webpages and PDFs. The vast majority of these annotations were made by students, collaborating to leave breadcrumbs on their reading that teachers can follow, to add questions on specific passages and link to connections they make, and to engage with teachers and other students in discussion of ideas right on top of shared texts.
Just last December, Hypothesis launched their learning management system (LMS) app, which enables single-sign-on with Moodle, along with any other platform that supports the IMS learning tools interoperability (LTI) standard. The LMS app makes it easy for any Moodle school to integrate Hypothesis in less than 10 minutes. We are helping Moodle schools implement collaborative annotation in live classes with support and training to help make sure students can start annotating easily, following best practices from other educators.
The webinar will cover everything you need to know about why and how you can start using collaborative annotation in your blended or online classes, including a demo of annotation capabilities, specific examples from real classrooms, and how to get started working with Hypothesis by installing their LMS app in Moodle and kicking off a supported Hypothesis pilot at your school. We’ll also have plenty of time to discuss questions and ideas from you and other attendees.
