What is Perusall?

Perusall is a social annotation tool that allows students to individually and collectively annotate learning materials including books, articles, websites, video, and more.

Why are we piloting Perusall at Pima?

Piloting a new technology allows us to safely test emerging technology in a small number of live courses to ensure positive teaching and learning experiences. Throughout our pilots, data is gathered from instructors and students to help us make well-informed decisions about how we might move forward with college-wide promotion of any educational technology.

Please Note: If you aim to participate in a pilot, it may require extra time and commitment - and may be offered only to a limited number of courses. Instructions on how to request participation in the pilot can be found below.
