Using the Hypothesis Sakai: Importing from Public Files (URL) and Google
* adapted from https://web.hypothes.is/help/using-the-hypothesis-lms-app-with-lessons-in-sakai/
Selecting a Document for Annotation
You will have the option to enter a publicly-viewable URL (See Step A) or to add a PDF from Google Drive (See Step B). The screen will look like this:
Step A: Add a publicly-viewable URL:
On the “Link Resource from External Tool” screen, paste a link in the text box. Please note that the content at the link must be publicly viewable (i.e., not behind a login or paywall). Here we’ve chosen a Wikipedia article, but you can link to blog posts, open-access books, journal and news articles, HTML pages, etc.
Step B: Select a PDF from Google Drive
Note: This process will change the privacy of the selected Google Drive file to “Anyone with the link can view,” creating a publicly-viewable URL for the document. However, the document URL will not be shared with anyone outside your course and cannot be easily discovered.
On the Link Resource from External Tool screen, click select PDF from Google Drive
You will be asked to authorize a Google account, and then you’ll be able to search for and select a file, or upload a new one. Click on the file you want to use and then click Select.
You will be brought back to the “Link Resource from External Tool” screen, where you’ll see a Google Drive URL in the text box. Click Submit.
