Another important learning skill is peer review. Reviewing the work of others who completed a similar assignment provides the authors with another perspective on their work. The reviewer also has an opportunity to see how the authors worked through the requirements and challenges associated with the project.

Learning outcomes

  • analyze peer work product
  • compare and contrast own work with that of peers


  • peer review, constructive criticism, feedback, suggestions, requirements


  1. Reviewing the work of others is known as "peer review" Review 2-3 of the Peer Review resources in the media section or search for a resource online. What are some types of feedback to provide as a Peer review? What feedback would be useful for you to receive? Post a link to the resource and a brief description of suggested review feedback to the Providing Peer Reviews discussion. Review the suggestions from 2 others.

  2. Peer Review - For the final assignment for this course, review and critique the resources selected for ALL groups including your own group. Review the Group Projects from each group. Be a "critical friend". Point out both good points and something that could be better. For EACH Group list provide overall feedback on the Group list in the Peer Review and Feedback discussion, as a Reply to the PROJECT link post for that Group.

  3. Review the Collaboration and Group Projects student guide and comment. Were the suggestions helpful to you and your project group? Is there anything that you would add based on your experience working in online groups in the class? The Collaboration Feedback 2 assignment is an opportunity to provide additional feedback on collaboration, now that the final project is finished. Although this is similar to a previous assignment, you should have new information with the additional experience.

  4. Project Groups Discussions - Take one last look through the discussions. What have you discovered about online collaboration? What discussion was the most interesting? Post your reply to your Project Groups Discussions.

  5. Revisit I have questions... - Look back through the I have questions... discussions. Select a topic that you think had the most interesting questions. What made these good questions? From the discussion, pick 2-3 questions - these can be yours or others. Post the questions along with a brief explanation for your choices to the I have questions... - Revisited discussion.
    Review and comment on at least 2 others. How had the questions contributed to exploring the topic?

  6. Learning Literacies - In addition to the course topics, we reviewed the six Learning Literacies (Find, Use, Protect, Make, Solve, Share) that are critical life-skills for everyone these days. Provide your feedback by completing the Learning Literacies questionnaire.

  7. Go back to the Week 1 discussion and review your own Introductions and expectations posts. Look at your first I wonder... assignment question. What do you think? Were your expectations met? Did you find answers to your initial questions? Is there anything else that you would add to the course? What did you do that helped you achieve your goals for this course? Is there anything that YOU might have done differently throughout the quarter? Post 2-3 sentence summary of your thoughts in the final I Think... assignment.

  8. Future of education - How do you and your friends see education in your lives and futures? What do you hope to achieve? • One thing you might need to help you to get to that future • One thing which might get in the way of you reaching their goals and aspirations • One thing you think needs to change for you to reach these goal. Post your thoughts and suggestions to the X. Future of Education discussion.

  9. Last chance - submit X. Extra Credit assignments to improve your overall course grade.

  10. If you want to say goodbye to your group and classmates, please do - Thanks and best wishes.

Thanks to everyone for all your hard work.

Best wishes.
