A social reading and annotation tool that helps develop comprehension and critical thinking about course materials. 

Getting Started

Writing in the margins has always been an essential activity for students. Annotation helps in reading comprehension and in developing critical thinking about course materials. Hypothesis enables students to continue this essential activity with online readings. Digital annotation also offers new affordances, enabling students to respond to text using different media and empowering them to collaborate on understanding and developing ideas about their readings.

Hypothesis is now integrated as a tool within Sakai.
