Perusall: FAQs for Instructors

Perusall enables collaborative annotation of assigned readings as an asynchronous way to replicate some of what we achieve during in-person class discussions. It’s integrated with the Glow course management system and provides a readings-focused discussion and collaboration forum that your students may find to be richer than Glow Discussions.

Getting Started

Perusall can be added to your Glow course from your course Settings: Go to Navigation and drag Perusall from the bottom of the list to your course menu items.

Full integration of the tool happens when you:

  1. Create an assignment in Glow
    • Set the Assignment Submission Type to External Tool.
    • Click on the find button and find Perusall as your External Tool.
    • Select the check box for “load this tool in a new tab.”
  2. Make sure to set the assignment title in Glow to the exact same name as the assignment in Perusall.
