Hypothesis is a tool that enables you to make notes in the margins of digital texts anywhere on the web and share them with others. Using social annotation fosters collaborative discussion, critical thinking, and a deeper understanding of readings.
Hypothesis is a mission-driven organization dedicated to the development and spread of open, standards-based annotation technologies and practices that enable anyone to annotate anywhere on the web. Our mission is to help people reason more effectively together through a shared, collaborative discussion layer over all knowledge. Hypothesis is based in San Francisco, CA, USA, with a worldwide team.
OEGlobal appreciates the support of Hypothes.is as a partner in the UNESCO OER Recommendation Annotation Activity
Special thanks to Nate Angell and the team at Hypothes.is for supporting our efforts to create a UNESCO OER Recommendation Annotation activity. We really believe annotation is an important form of scholarship and are super pleased to be exploring its potential for advancing implementation of the UNESCO OER Recommendation with the global open education community. Particularly impressive is the way Hypothes.is is built right into applications and can be used collaboratively to make visible additional resources, provide commentary, and spark conversation. Thanks for supporting us.
I’m so happy to be here personally, and also representing Hypothesis at OEGlobal 2021. I’d love to connect with anyone about open educational practices and resources, as well as what we call “social annotation”: practices and tools that enable people to connect with each other and ideas to make reading active, visible, and social.
You can learn more about me on my blog or on Twitter.
Thank you so much, Nate, for being part of this and representing Hypothesis. We hope to invoke some large acts of social annotation… starting tomorrow.
