Social annotation tools help students read together

Now, a new study offers evidence supporting what […] has long observed: online social annotation helps students understand and construct knowledge around scholarly content, while at the same time building community.

There is room for the use of social annotation tools in legal education especially as more teaching resources move online. Tools like Hypothesis would provide law students with ways to highlight and annotate online materials and share those as annotations with study groups, peers, and teachers.

Hypothesis is available in CALI Lawbooks, the online publishing platform that for CALI members

Can I create a syllabus with Node-RED?

Node-RED is a programming tool for wiring together hardware devices, APIs and online services in new and interesting ways. It provides a browser-based editor that makes it easy to wire together flows using the wide range of nodes in the palette that can be deployed to its runtime in a single-click.

Here’s an idea: use the low code browser based flow design tools of Node-RED to create a syllabus of online resources. Since Node-RED can work with APIs and I have an API for CALI resources, I should be able to use Node-RED tools to design a syllabus as a flowchart through a series of resources.

I suspect there are a few missing pieces here like a program or routine to step through the flow created by Node-RED and a system from tracking results that talks to Node-RED. The pieces are likely buildable one identified. The result would be a programmed learning environment using Node-RED as a primary component.

Learning how to apply some of the algorithms mentioned in this article would likely improve students’ and teachers’ ability to locate CALI resources and allow us to build a useful recommender system.
