Integrating Perusall with Canvas

Perusall is an annotation tool that integrates with Canvas. In order to have Perusall integrated within your course, please contact canvas@yale.edu and we will be more than happy to assist you.

Perusall allows students and their instructors to collaboratively markup .pdf documents. This tool also allows:

  • User tagging with email alerts and Perusall inbox alert.
  • Tagging of annotations as questions automatically when a user uses a question mark.
  • Ability to filter annotations to view questions, unanswered questions, annotations by instructor, or annotations by a specific student.
  • Automatic grading.
  • Confusion report to see where students have the most questions.
  • Provides a downloadable .csv of all annotations in an assignment.
