Welcome to the Annotations @ Harvard website. This site highlights different ways annotations are being used in teaching and research across Harvard, as well as links to available resources. If you have, or know of, an interesting use case of Annotations that we could highlight on this page, please contact let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll add it to the site.
Annotation tools available in Canvas:
With the availability of LTI, there are three tools currently being piloted in Canvas courses: CritiqueIT, the HarvardX Annotation Tool, and Perusall. For more information on how to have these set up in your course, please contact your school Academic Technology department. An overview of the tools can be found on the Academic Technology for FAS website.
