ANNOTATION STUDIO is a digital annotation tool developed in MIT’s digital humanities lab, the HyperStudio, in a collaboration between Wyn Kelley (Literature) and Kurt Fendt (HyperStudio Director), Annotation Studio provides a digital workspace in which users may 1) upload a text and select and annotate elements of it, with particular attention to its multimedia sources and adaptations, and 2) use their findings for research and writing projects in humanities classrooms. Such an approach can create lively social communities, help students appreciate literary works more fully, and heighten their sophistication in using their digital-literacy skills.
