Video: Annotating Digital Rhetoric

In order to invite readers to interact with the text, I created a video screencast that shows viewers how to annotate the digital version of the book using the Hypothesis social annotation tool. As I describe in the video, reading others’ responses to the book and sharing one's own responses with a public audience adds a new layer to the reading experience. Furthermore, this capacity to directly engage with the text puts into practice Douglas Eyman’s ideas about digital rhetoric as an interactive and intertextual endeavor. I created the screencast using QuickTime and iMovie. For additional access, I included a transcript of the video.
