What is this service?

The Hypothes.is integration with Canvas brings discussion directly to course content by enabling students and teachers to add comments and start conversations in the margins of texts. Collaborative annotation engages students more deeply in course readings and gives teachers a view into how students are reading.

Who is eligible for this service?

All Middlebury Canvas users can access Hypothes.is. 

How do I learn about this service?

Hypothes.is has extensive documentation and examples that are domain specific. You can also reach out to DLINQ directly to talk through pedagogical applications. There are also additional directions for using Hypothes.is within Canvas here.

How do I access Hypothes.is?

The Hypothes.is LTI app is already installed in all Canvas course sites. To use Hypothes.is in Canvas, you can either 1) create an assignment in Canvas and select Hypothes.is as the External Tool or 2) enable it for non-graded web and PDF annotation activities as an “external tool” within a module.
