The CUNY installation of Manifold Scholarship serves as a a free, collaborative, open-source platform for the CUNY community to create and teach with dynamic digital texts. You can create projects to house either your own scholarship or custom classroom versions of texts and textbooks that are openly licensed or in the public domain.
Teaching with Annotations
A great benefit that teaching with a Manifold text brings to your classroom is the possibility of conducting social annotation activities and assignments. Why Teach with social annotation in Manifold? It helps develop critical reading skills, empowers students as co-creators, can help students see that reading and writing are never solitary activities, and teaches important digital literacy and civic engagement.
For more information on how to teach with social annotation, visit our quick guide “Teaching with Annotations“.
Reading groups allow readers to annotate texts as a cohort. With reading groups, readers can create public, private, and anonymous annotation groups; invite others to their groups; and manage group membership.
