Principles of marketing/PMKT101/Orientation/Annotations
Hypothes.is is an open source online tool that enables you to annotate any web page or pdf document accessible online via your browser and to share these annotations publicly. Users can also reply to annotations. Hypothes.is supports tags, so annotations tagged using the "PMKT101" course code for Core Foundations of Successful Marketing will be harvested and appear in the course feed.
Typically an OERu course will prompt learners to annotate and comment on a designated web page or pdf document online. However, remember that you can annotate any web page you find online and by tagging your annotation using the course code, this resource comment will be shared with your peers via the course feed. In short, don't restrict your annotations to the predetermined resource links embedded in the materials.
To use Hypothes.is, you must first create an account and be logged in to post annotations.
There are two ways to activate the following browser buttons which are displayed on the top right-hand side of your screen which are used to annotate web pages when you are logged in to hypothes.is:
- Activating Hypothes.is via your browser (You will first need to add the Hypothes.is extension or bookmarklet to your browser. Note that Hypothes.is is available for most, but not all, web browsers.)
- Going directly to the “Paste a Link” option on the Hypothes.is website. (This adds the prefix “https://via.hypothes.is/” in front of the url of the page you want to annotate.)
