Add Hypothesis to Your D2L Course

NOTE: This integration is currently only available for LSC-Tomball.

Hypothesis is an easy to use pedagogical tool that enables students and teachers to have conversations in the margins of digital texts. Using social annotation gives you new ways to foster student success by building community, critical thinking, and a deeper understanding of readings.
