Perusall is a social e-reader. It allows lecturers to share digital resources with students and students to collaboratively comment directly on the readings, and to each other's contributions. Perusall also generates reports that can be used to stimulate class discussion.
Exploring Perusall in a hands-on way (as a student)
Te Puna Ako has a practice Moodle paper for staff where you can explore different activities in Perusall (such as .pdfs, videos and images).
Click here to go to the Perusall Demonstration paper - this is a self-enrol paper. To enrol, select the Add this paper to my Moodle paper listing button.
To access the model Perusall activities, scroll down to the Assessments section and select the example activity names.
You can also view a workshop recording (in the Panopto block on the right) and slides.
