Important Notes

  • When setting up your Perusall course, you will see that SLU uses the free version of Perusall and does not have a license.  You will be given the opportunity set a price for your students to pay, you can set that to $0 and choose the "none of these make sense for me right now" option.  If so, your students will not be prompted to pay or make a donation when they access your Perusall course.
  • Before uploading PDFs to Perusall, confirm the content in your PDF is accessible  and pages are cropped and rotated appropriately.
