What’s New in Perusall: You can now add VIDEO! πŸ™ŒπŸ» πŸ™ŒπŸ» πŸ™ŒπŸ»

  • Your students can now engage socially around video content in the same way they already can around books, articles, and other documents. Go to Library > Add > Video and select a video from YouTube, Vimeo, Google Drive, Dropbox, or a video file hosted elsewhere to add to your course.
  • You can now allow colleagues to copy your course (your documents, assignments, instructor-initiated threads, and settings) without having to give them instructor access to your course. Go to Settings > Access to obtain your course’s unique β€œcopy code” that another instructor can use to copy from your course. Instructors with your copy code can copy the content in your course but have no access to student data.
  • You can now use more flexible search syntax to search books and other documents, like a web search: search for exact phrases by enclosing them in quotation marks, indicate that a word must appear with a plus sign, or indicate that a word must not appear with a minus sign. Visit the search page on Perusall’s support site for more information.
  • When you use the Canvas integration, Perusall can now mirror your Canvas groups within Perusall, avoiding the need to define groups manually in Perusall. Visit the Canvas setup page on Perusall’s support site for more information.
