Add Hypothesis to Sakai

The Hypothesis  integration in Sakai allows you to host documents for collaboration, and automatically handles student access.

1. Upload your documents to Sakai

If you are using Hypothesis to mark up content that is already publicly available (a website or PDF stored in the cloud and shared publicly) you can skip this step. If you are supplying a PDF to use with Hypothesis, you must:

  1. Confirm the text in your PDF is selectable and pages are cropped and rotated appropriately
  2. Upload the PDF to your Resources folder in Sakai
  3. Make the PDF publicly accessible 
  4. Copy the URL for the file

2. Add a Lesson

  1. Create a new lessons page

3. Add Hypothesis to your Lesson

You will repeat these steps for each Hypothesis document you add to your lesson. From your lesson page:

  1. Click Add Content +
  2. Click Add External Tool
  3. Click Hypothesis
  4. Enter a title and description for your Hypothesis activity
  5. Click Save
  6. Click the title of your activity
  7. Click the button Enter URL of web page or PDF
  8. Enter the URL of your web page, or paste the URL of the PDF you retrieved from step 2.4
  9. Click Submit
