Description

This presentation explores a dynamic approach to enhancing the quality of Open Educational Resource (OER) textbooks in asynchronous undergraduate and graduate courses. Students are actively involved in the generation of multiple-choice test questions, tasked with creating both factual and applied questions. What sets this method apart is the integration of the peer review platform FeedbackFruits, available free through their World Educator's Initiative.

Through asynchronous collaboration, students engage in peer review, refining and evaluating each other's questions. This innovative process not only promotes a deeper understanding of course content but also cultivates critical thinking skills. The presentation will discuss the integration of this approach into online courses, emphasizing its potential to foster a sense of community and active learning in the digital realm. Attendees will gain insights into the practical application of FeedbackFruits for peer review, offering an effective and accessible tool for educators seeking to implement similar strategies in asynchronous OER environments.
