Perusall is a platform that allows someone to annotate readings and engage the reading material in a style akin to social media posting. Full comments can be added, users can “like” comments, use hashtags, link URLs to comments, and even use emoticons. — adapted from Etools: Using Perusall in the Classroom Celeste C Wells, Boston College.
Start annotation threads by highlighting text, asking a question, or posting a comment. Replies and comments can also be added to have conversations directly within a document.
