Hypothes.is is a tool that allows you to collaboratively annotate the web (it is very cool!). For most of your classes with me, you’ll be working with annotation groups.
Step 1: First, sign up for an account with Hypothes.is at https://hypothes.is/signup
Step 2: Once you’ve been assigned a group, you should receive a URL that looks like this: https://hypothes.is/groups/1PP7DwYL/XXXX
Step 2: Click on the link and sign in to your group.
Step 3: Once you have logged in, go to the page you will be annotating (this will usually be linked from your course site)
Step 4: Make sure you select your group (click on the group title)
Step 5: Then highlight text that you have questions about, or you think is important. Click on “annotate” and enter your question or comment. Click on “Post to [your group]”
Congratulations, you have made an annotation!
You can also respond to things your colleagues have posted.
