Perusall – An Effective Tool for Engaging Students in Pre-class Reading Activities

What is Persuall?

Perusall (https://perusall.com/) is a social e-reader designed for engaging students in peer learning via collaborative annotation exercises. It was developed by three Harvard University professors (Gary King, Eric Mazur, and Kelly Miller) and a software engineer Brian Lukoff. Apart from readings from journals or open educational resources (OER), the platform was recently upgraded to accommodate multi-media, such as video and podcasts. It supports teachers to engage students in meaningful discussion on the assigned readings in or outside the classroom.
