Students help each other learn by collectively annotating readings in threads, responding to each other’s comments, and interacting.
Bring the interactivity of a small seminar to a large lecture course, without sacrificing efficiency.
Instructors now use Perusall in classes from 2 to 1,000+ students, in the sciences, humanities, and social sciences.
Save your time, improve classroom time
Perusall automatically manages entire out-of-classroom experience, and motivates participation via social connections and automatic engagement scores.
Instead of the blank stares students often give to “Any questions?”, start class using Perusall’s "student confusion report" — a one-page summary of concepts students had trouble with or most engaged them, along with some of the best annotations.
Students pay nothing for Perusall. For copyrighted textbooks, students simply purchase the book through Perusall instead of elsewhere.
