Perusall helps every student prepare for every class. Students carry out assignments to annotate texts before class for a part of the course credit. Thus, they are invited to read and think about your texts before the lecture. With prepared students, time during the lecture can be used for active learning: discussions, tasks and exercises.
Perusall is a social system. Students annotate together, so studying becomes a social, not solitary experience. Some students may want to be the first to ask questions based on a text; others may like answering questions or responding to fellow students more. The lecturer sees the annotations beforehand. This makes it possible to pick out good annotations from students who may normally be too shy to speak up in class. By rewarding these annotations it is possible to encourage more students than usual to participate in class discussions.
Scoring and grading are done automatically. As a lecturer you can review the scores and check marginal students scores by hand, saving you a lot of time. At the same time, Perusall helps to make sense of the many annotations by providing a confusion report and overviews of most upvoted comments and questions. This helps you as a teacher to focus on the most important issues that students come up with.
