Perusall allows group annotation of texts, websites, videos, and podcasts. It offers auto-grading and can provide access to a number of publisher texts (with student-paid fees) found in a searchable database. Students can “upvote” peer annotations. Perusall also supports Groups in Canvas, and as such, is recommended for large courses. Perusall requires a separate account/login for both faculty and students.
Considerations for using Perusall
Instructors must first create assignments on Perusall, then copy them into Canvas using the external tool feature in assignments or modules.
Currently, Perusall does not support a TA role.
