Perusall offers social annotation features that can be used to increase student engagement, collaboration, and community within your MyCourses course. Perusall can be used with many open educational resources, websites, PDF files, Word documents and even select publisher materials to encourage students to actively engage with assigned readings and each other. Perusall is integrated with MyCourses.
Students use Perusall to collaboratively annotate readings; answering each other’s questions and engaging in discussions. Student annotations can be graded using Perusall’s AI- assisted grading system to help instructors determine engagement and participation grades.
