This article explains what a workshop activity is and how to use it.


What is a Workshop?

The Workshop Activity is a peer assessment tool that students can use to evaluate each others work. The Workshop Activity can be identified by the two avatars with a speech bubble icon. Workshop Activity icon

Contributing to a Workshop

There are two stages to a Workshop Activity, the submission phase and the assessment phase.

In this example scenario a member of staff has created a Workshop and is asking for students to add comments to their peer's work.

Submission Phase

During the submission phase you will need to submit your work. Screen shot of the Submission phase screen in the Workshop Activity

A member of staff will inform you once the submission phase has ended and the assessment phase has begun. In this stage you will be assigned one or more documents to assess.

A member of staff will have created different aspects of the document for you to leave comments about. Once you have finished, be sure to add any overall feedback in the final box and then select "Save and close".

Finally, assess any other work that has been allocated to you and wait for the assessment phase to end.

Accessing Feedback

Once the assessment phase has finished, staff will inform you when feedback is ready to access.

To do so, simply return the the Workshop Activity and select the title of your submission from the "Your submission" section.
