What students are saying about Perusall!

An image of a student user of Peursall, who provides a written testimonial.

"The most beneficial feature of Perusall is the opportunity to engage with the text from a problem-centric approach. By this I mean that when my classmates asked questions, I redoubled my efforts to understand that material, even seeking outside sources which I could link within my annotations."

"It has been so handy in helping connect the class with discussion about our textbooks and has sparked numerous classroom discussions. The website overall has really helped me with the learning process for this class and assists in keeping my thoughts in order and expanding upon them with other people's annotations or thoughts to give me more perspective."
