Abstract

In this paper, an innovative cloud platform for implementing a collaborative assessment process in higher education is introduced. This platform provides a useful tool to support a peer review method for student assessment. The students are involved in the process of assessment by means of crossed reviews which aim to identify the lacks or mistakes in their works. The suggested improvements will be performed and assessed by the students themselves in successive deliveries through the web platform created. This method provides several advantages in the teaching-learning process for engineering students. The works’ review process cultivates the critical thinking and allows to achieve better results. In addition, students are engaged more actively in their educational process which increases their motivation in learning. The system is based on web 2.0 features and enables the collaboration among students and instructors to build learning along this process.
