Perusall is an addition to VU's digital learning environment Canvas. Where Canvas offers basic functionalities, Perusall offers a social learning platform where students can study texts or videos in groups of up to 20 students. The teacher can indicate that students must meet a minimum number, spread and quality of content comments.
Perusall is very suitable to support active blended learning and fits very well in the Flipped Classroom approach to education design. With Perusall you can give students specific assignments to prepare for lectures or workgroups. As a teacher you can follow what the students do and where they still have problems with the material. During the lecture or workgroup, Perusall allows you to go into depth much faster.
