I plan to build a flexible platform for teachers to annotate texts in the CLTK Archive. The purpose of the annotations is twofold: first, to guide the students in their (re)readings of the text; and second, to provide a ready-to-hand reference to which students and teachers can return.

Teachers will be able to enter annotations either by uploading a list of references and notes or by entering their annotations directly through a WYSIWYG interface built on top of Draft.js. Annotations will be searchable via Elasticsearch, taggable, and, if time allows, versioned.
