Remarq®, the decentralized scholarly collaboration network, has launched a Chrome browser extension to facilitate annotation, collaboration, and connection across the Web, specifically to help students and instructors be more effective in their classroom collaborations, while also extending the value of Remarq for scholarly users generally.

Called Remarq® Lite, this browser extension allows users to seamlessly integrate notes and highlights from any online source into their unified Remarq profile. It also allows users to create and join public and private groups for collaboration.

The plugin is free, and available for download now. Remarq Lite works best with Chrome. It is also compatible with Firefox, Microsoft Edge, and Safari as a bookmark users can activate (fully integrated plugins for these browsers are being developed).

Designed specifically to support users in the education market, Remarq Lite allows:

  • instructors to create private classroom groups for collaboration
  • students to create private groups for project work
  • other teams to create private or public groups for various purposes.

Users can include rich media, math, annotated text, and more in their group conversations using Remarq Lite.

Users of Remarq Lite will see their notes, highlights, and group activity reflected in their full Remarq profiles. Remarq is available on a growing number of journals. Users of Remarq on journals can also benefit from using Remarq Lite, as the plugin notifies them of activity in Remarq, while allowing them to extend the value of their profile across other sources and media.

Collaboration is central to our vision of a healthier web. Try Remarq Lite today, and see what you’re missing.
