Perusall Improvements

Perusall has improved its popular social annotation tool that will take your students’ reading experiences to the next level. The improvement brings you enhanced features while still accessing your old Perusall files. For more information read the Weekly Tip, available in the IT@IC TDX Knowledge Base, or in today's Announcement posted to the Canvas Resources Library @ IC course.  

Which version should I use? 

If you are adding Perusall to your course for the first time, please select Perusall 1.3.  

What if I have used the old version of Perusall?  

You can import content from prior versions of Perusall. See the FAQs provided in the Weekly Tip.  

How do I add Perusall to my course? 

In the course in which you want to add Perusall: 

  1. In your Canvas course go to "Settings." 
  2. Click the “Navigation” tab. 
  3. Drag Perusall 1.3 from the lower menu to the upper menu. 
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the screen and click “Save” to enable your changes.
