Explore any URL featuring Hypothesis annotation. CROWDLAAERS provides learning analytics about active participants, temporal activity (active days), collaborative discourse (threads), and also Hypothesis tags. Groups of individual annotations may be sorted by date, contributor, annotation, tags, and level (or the position of an annotation reply in a thread). Select any annotation to read the full content within CROWDLAAERS or in context of the source document. Or explore how CROWDLAAERS has been applied to curated sets of online texts by selecting from Projects.
RSVPed Attending AnnotatED at OLC Innovate 2019
Join us 1–4pm MT Tuesday, 2 April 2019 at AnnotatED, a free annotation summit brought to you by Hypothesis in conjunction with OLC Innovate 2019. RSVP NOW to reserve your spot at this free event. Can't make it to Colorado? RSVP as a virtual participant. Learn more about all the annotation activities happening at #OLCInnovate! Attendees will include leaders from the annotation community like Marginal Syllabus co-founder Remi Kalir, Francisco Perez from CROWDLAAERS, Director of Education Jeremy Dean and Nate Angell from Hypothesis, and folks from institutions now piloting annotation like CSU Channel Islands and MSU Denver. The summit will feature a mini-keynote from Manuel Espinoza, Associate professor of Educational Foundations at CU Denver. Connect with your peers at other institutions working with annotation. Learn about and share annotation use cases. Explore existing and new research on the impact of annotation in education. Find out how you, your colleagues, and your institution can get started or expand annotation in partnership with Hypothesis. Help shape future annotation summits. Refreshments provided.

It’s not exactly an implementation of Webmention, but I was interested to find that there’s a tool from Hypothes.is that will show you (all?) the annotations (and replies) on your website.

Just visit https://jonudell.info/h/facet/ and then enter the appropriate domain name followed by /* as a wildcard to search.

Examples for:

Now wouldn’t it be cool if this were available in the main UI? Perhaps if there were a button for “Site notes” or highlights? This may be unwieldy for the New York Times, but could be reasonable and very useful for smaller personal and/or academic based websites.

The user interface for the side bar of Hypothesis with a "Site Notes" element added in red next to "Annotations" and "Page Notes"

Other than following the RSS feeds of specific people’s public highlights and annotations, is there an easier way of following people on Hypothes.is? Is there a social layer or reader side I’m missing?

Who should I be following? How can I discover interesting annotators besides besides slowly and organically? Who out there is using Hypothes.is in unique and interesting ways?

And of course, there’s also following feeds of interesting tags, but how can one find the largest and most interesting subsets? Many of the tags I’m interested in following are only being annotated and followed by me.

Is there a master list of public tags ranked in order of prevalence? Academic based tags? 

I feel like there’s far more interesting material being unearthed by this tool, just based on how I’m using it, but that the discovery portion is largely missing, or hidden away in the dark corners of Jon Udell’s web or only via API access.

I find myself wondering what’s at the bleeding edge that I’m not seeing (without following the GitHub repo on a regular basis).

There’s also a robust ecosystem of tools to follow users, monitor site annotations etc.  

Wait? What!? I’ve been wanting to be able to follow users annotations and I’d love the ability to monitor site annotations!! (I’ve even suggested that they added Webmention before to do direct notifications for site annotations.)

Where have you seen these things hiding Tom?

Especially on mobile.  

I’ve found in the past that highlighting on Chrome for Android was nearly impossible. I’ve switched to using Firefox when I need to use hypothes.is on mobile.

👓 Augmenting Human Intellect: A Conceptual Framework | framework.thoughtvectors.net

Read Augmenting Human Intellect: A Conceptual Framework (framework.thoughtvectors.net)

This February 2019, join us as we collaboratively read and collectively annotate three crucial parts of Doug Engelbart’s 1962 research report and manifesto, Augmenting Human Intellect: A Conceptual Framework.

Doug Engelbart’s 1962 manifesto  offers a unique, multidisciplinary perspective on how human ingenuity, in symbiosis with networked digital computing technologies, might enlarge human capability and help address humanity’s most urgent problems.

This looks like a very cool annotation project!

📑 Welcome to my online sandbox. | Joyce Garcia

Annotated Welcome to my online sandbox. by Joyce GarciaJoyce Garcia (Gratuitous Web Presence)
Then I learned about the IndieWeb movement and Micro.blog, and I fell in love with the Internet as I once hoped it would be: a place where people could congregate, converse, and learn from one another with somewhat minimal rancor — and without an overtly overarching need to make a buck with their “content.”  

📑 Collaborative resource curation | Hypothes.is

Replied to Collaborative resource curation by Jon Udell (Hypothesis)
Recently we decided to keep better track of tweets, blog posts, and other web resources that mention and discuss our product. There are two common ways to do that: send links to a list maintainer, or co-edit a shared list of links. Here’s a third way, less common but arguably more powerful and flexible: tag the web resources in situ.

It isn’t rocket science, but as Jon indicates, it’s *incredibly *powerful.

I use my personal website with several levels of taxonomy for tagging and categorizing a variety of things for later search and research.

Much like the example of the Public Radio International producer, I’ve created what I call a “faux-cast” because I tag everything I listen to online and save it to my website including the appropriate <audio> link to the.mp3 file so that anyone who wants to follow the feed of my listens can have a playlist of all the podcast and internet-related audio I’m listening to.

A visual version of my “listened to” tags can be found at https://boffosocko.com/kind/listen/ with the RSS feed at https://boffosocko.com/kind/listen/feed/

👓 Hypothesis Launches App to Bring Annotation to Learning Management Systems | Hypothes.is

Read Hypothesis Launches App to Bring Annotation to Learning Management Systems by Jeremy Dean (Hypothes.is)

We are excited to announce the official launch of the Hypothesis LMS app. Thanks to the Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) standard, Hypothesis now integrates with all major LTI-compliant Learning Management Systems, including Instructure Canvas, Blackboard Learn, D2L Brightspace, Moodle, and Sakai. We will be testing other platforms, including MOOC-providers like Coursera and edX in the coming weeks and months.

With this release, Hypothesis is better prepared to support the strong adoption we already see in teaching and learning. Students and teachers are a majority of the nearly 200 thousand annotators who have created over 4.3 million annotations using Hypothesis. The new LMS integration means teachers can bring collaborative annotation in their classrooms seamlessly as a part of their normal workflow.

👓 Viewing and exporting Hypothesis annotations | Jon Udell | Hypothesis

Read Viewing and exporting Hypothesis annotations by Jon Udell (Hypothes.is Blog)

We’re delighted to see Roderic Page and Kris Shaffer putting the Hypothesis API to work. For us, the API isn’t just a great way to integrate Hypothesis with other systems. It’s also a way to try out ideas that inform the development of Hypothesis.

Today I’ll share two of those ideas. One is a faceted viewer that displays sets of annotations by user, group, and tag. The other exports annotations to several formats. If you’re a Hypothesis user, you may find these helpful until proper implementations are built into the product (faceted viewer: soon, export: later). And your feedback will help us design and build those features. If you’re a developer, you can use these as examples to learn to form API queries, authenticate for access to private and group annotations, parse JSON responses, and navigate threaded conversations.

🔖 View and export Hypothesis annotations

Bookmarked View and export Hypothesis annotations (jonudell.info)
Click HTML, CSV, or JSON to search for matching Hypothesis annotations and display them in one of those formats. Fill in one or more facets to filter results. The facets are username, url (or wildcard_uri), tag, and any. If you need more than 400 results, set max to a larger number. If you just click a button without specifying any facets other than the default group Public, you'll get the most recent 400 Hypothesis annotations in the Public group.
