Ready to try a new social annotation tool? Hypothesis is being piloted at UIC during the Spring 2023 semester. Hypothesis is an easy-to-use pedagogical tool that enables students and teachers to have conversations in the margins of digital texts. Using social annotation gives you new ways to foster student success by building community, critical thinking, and a deeper understanding of readings.
For an introduction to Hypothesis, watch this overview video: Hypothesis for Education

UIC’s licensed Hypothesis integration makes things much easier for instructors by allowing auto-user creation, single-sign on, auto-group creation, and assignment setup.
