Hypothesis logo


Hypothesis is a collaborative web annotation tool that allows users to annotate digital text like websites, pdfs, EPUBS, and more. It also allows users to make private notes and public comments, as well as form reading groups and have discussions in those reading groups. Collaborative annotation engages students more deeply in course readings and gives teachers a view into how students are reading – making reading visible, active, and social.

Montclair State University is running a Hypothesis Pilot for through June 2022. Faculty members have access to Hypothesis as an external tool in Canvas. This integration with Canvas takes care of all Hypothesis account provisioning for faculty and students.
