NB Helps Flip the Classroom

I recently came across in interesting free online annotation tool called NB developed by MIT, that seems ideal for helping to flip the classroom as part of an asynchronous learning approach.

NB allows an instructor to upload pdfs so that students can read and annotate them collectively. Students can ask questions about sections of text, answer each other, or vote for questions. This encourages active, collaborative learning that can be easily monitored by an instructor and saves time for everyone. You can check out the FAQ here and watch the video below to see how it works:
