Collaborative e-reader that grades students‘ engagement with reading assignments (Perusall)

Harvard University has created a collaborative e-reader that an American friend of mine recommended to me. It sounds like an awesome tool: It measures and grades students‘ engagement with a reading assignment and turns the solitary reading experience into a collaborative one.  It‘s also free for instructors and students. 

More information can be found here:

According to the website it can be integrated into an LMS, however there is no mentioning of itslearning and I doubt its compliance to European data regulations. 

I would love to see a tool like this on itslearning!

    I contacted Perusall‘s support team and it actually is compliant to GDPR laws!
