Continued Educational Technology Pilot: FeedbackFruits

We are excited to announce that we are continuing to facilitate our year-long pilot of FeedbackFruits, a tool suite that supports a variety of peer-to-peer, instructor-to-student, and student-to-course content feedback activities. FeedbackFruits is integrated and available through Canvas Assignments.

Some of the available tools include:

  • Peer Review - peer-to-peer evaluation of a submitted assignment
  • Skill Review - instructor-to-student evaluation of a student's skills (such as an oral exam or presentation)
  • Group Member Evaluation - peer-to-peer evaluation of their group member's performance / skills
  • Interactive Document / Video / Audio - student-to-course content engagement with uploaded materials through annotations and embedded discussion questions / quizzes
  • Discussion on Topic / Work - peer-to-peer discussion on a specific topic or student-uploaded work
