What is Hypothesis?
Hypothesis is an easy-to-use social annotation tool that makes assigned readings active, visible, and social by enabling students to add comments and start conversations directly within the margins of digital text. It engages students more deeply in assigned readings and gives teachers the power to take static web content and turn it into integrative material. With Hypothesis:
- Instructors can enable Hypothesis on assigned readings, such as public web pages and PDFs
- Students don't need to install or sign up for anything
- You can grade student annotations from assigned readings in SpeedGrader
