Oops. I messed this up a bit. Oh well, I'll fix it soon!
Are students really reading the web pages I direct them to?

What is Web Annotation? How can it help answer the question in this workshop’s title?
*Chrome – Select the Chrome extension link and then add it to your browser through the Chrome Web Store
*Edge (2020 version only) – Select the Chrome extension; you will have to opt in to using non-Microsoft app stores
*Firefox – Add/drag the Hypothes.is bookmarklet to your bookmark toolbar
Note: All browsers can use the bookmarklet
Adding Media to Your Entries
Link: Adding Links, Images, and Videos to Your Annotations https://web.hypothes.is/help/adding-links-images-and-videos-to-your-annotations/ (note: I stole a bunch of language from this for below)
(http://insert-your-link-here.com)next it. Replace (using the Delete button and then pasting with Control-V) the
http://insert-your-link-here.comwith the URL you copied in Step 1, making sure to leave the parentheses. The text will look weird (not standard HTML link syntax), but when you save the annotation your link will look normal.
http://insert-your-link-here.comwith the gif URL you copied, making sure to leave the parentheses. You will see your gif when you hit post.
http://insert-your-link-here.comwith the image URL you copied, making sure to leave the parentheses. You will see your image when you hit post (sometimes sideways).
Hypothes.is uses the Markdown markup language, so you can do more specific formatting as you learn its syntax:

Other Ways to Annotate with Hypothes.is
Use the Paste A Link link at the top of the Hypothes.is. homepage to type or paste in a website address to annotate It without using a browser extension or browser bookmarklet.
Use the Via Proxy to share an annotated page with someone who does not have a Hypothesis account. (Note that users without Hypothesis accounts can read public annotations but cannot create or reply to annotations.): https://web.hypothes.is/help/what-is-the-via-proxy/
