Pilot With Hypothesis
Are you interested in increasing student engagement, expanding reading comprehension, and building critical-thinking and community in classes? Collaborative annotation makes reading active, visible, and social, enabling students to engage with their texts, teachers, ideas, and each other in deeper, more meaningful ways.
Our pilot program gives you full learning management system (LMS) integration, unlimited usage, and the guidance and support of the Hypothesis team to ensure that your experience is seamless, successful, sustainable, and optimized for student success. Piloting enables you to see what it would look like to support collaborative annotation across your institution. It’s the best way to determine if you want to adopt Hypothesis for ongoing use.
