Hypothesis for Collaborative Web Annotation: Comments From Evergreen Faculty

Now Integrated witih Canvas

Comments From Evergreen Faculty

“I would definitely use hypothesis again - and in any teaching situation - whether in-person, hybrid or remote.”

“[Hypothesis] made it possible for students to make their knowledge common, to learn from each other, to show up in ways they otherwise might not have been able to”

“I would highly recommend it as a low-stakes way to ‘get on the same page’ with your students - a minimum of framing is all it takes to get very lively and engaging writing anchored at every turn in the text. Excellent way to prime the pump for seminar, for instance.”

"I would likely incorporate Hypothesis into most of my future programs.   It allows for students to interact with text in ways that are more collaborative and intuitive than other ways I've tried.  I also suspect it can be used in combinations that increase accessibility for neurodivergent students . . ."

“I bring the zeal of the converted: my initial reaction was that I had no interest in reading students' margin notes online, and I prefer paper texts anyway. The current reality got me into it, and now I'm a major enthusiast: Hypothesis solves problems with seminar which I've been struggling with for over a decade.”

“Hypothesis has quickly become an indispensable tool for our online teaching; it's a great way for students to be able to work with text together, and we've built three assignments per week around it”

“This tool is a hybrid teaching gift.”
