Recommended Attendees: Instructors who are interested in collaboratively annotating and highlighting information

This workshop is offered for enrichment but does not have a stipend

Hypothes.is is rapidly becoming known as “a peer review layer over the entire internet.” In this workshop, you will learn how to turn simple bits of informative texts into full collaboration stations, allowing both you and your students to publicly or privately annotate and highlight information within a webpage or pdf file. The days of reading blocks of texts without any conceptualization or built-in discussion are behind us. Come see how we can evolve our student’s engagement and experiences at CSUN.
