tools we use:
- hypothes.is: this is an annotation platform that allows you to leave comments on nearly any content published on the web, from blogs like this one to magazines like the Atlantic to scholarly articles. Moreover, you can see others’ annotations and comment on the comments. To annotate something, either install the hypothes.is plugin for the Chrome browser or access this site and paste in the URL of the page you want to annotate.
- Audacity: a useful, robust, free audio recording app that you may wish to use for our audiobook assignment. It takes a bit of tinkering to get the hang of it, but it’s very powerful.
- Melville Electronic Library
- Melville’s Marginalia: collection of Melville’s books with page images and summaries of every comment and marking he scribbled in the margins (where possible to decipher).
- Moby Dick at Sea: Twitter bot created by Mark Sample that spouts (sorry) a sentence from Moby Dick every two hours.
