I signed up for an account with Hypothes.is and just got the newest announcement on the system being live, with a Chrome extension and more for annotating web pages and PDFs. Open Annotation holds out tremendously exciting promise for humanities, arts, and all classes and for public scholarship and discourse. I’m only starting to get started with Hypothes.is, and I’m very excited for the possibilities of using it in a course. My test annotations are already course-geared with a tag for ease: https://hypothes.is/stream?q=tag:%27DLOC_DOCC%27
My account (with only tests thus far, but I’ll continue to do open notes): https://hypothes.is/stream?q=user:laurientaylor
Hypothes.is has a quick guide for teaching using Hypothes.is: https://hypothes.is/quick-start-guide/
Given that this came so closely in line with the Modern Language Association’s (MLA) white paper on Scholarly Editions, I’m thinking about open annotation and scholarly editions together in relation to teaching and research.
