Perusall is a social elearning platform which allows students to collectively read, digitally annotate and discuss the readings. It can be integrated into an LMS.

We aim to change the nature of reading — from the traditional solitary experience to an engaging and collective one. We aim to change education — so all students do the reading, come to class prepared, and are motivated to do so because they care about the content.
