  5. WASP: A Web-based Annotation Sharing Platform for Collaborative Inquiry Learning


    WASP refers to a web-based platform where users are able to collaborate in groups to create annotation and share resources with each other. The motivation for developing the social annotation tool is the penetration of social media in higher education, Professor Li said. The WASP creators conducted studies on existing social annotation apps in the market and found that not enough products are available to facilitate users to reflect on and regulate their learning.“Our motivation is, of course, to enhance the knowledge management facilities of those platforms. For most of those apps or tools available in the market, they could not support co-annotation for PDF files,” Professor Li pointed out.
