Collecting informal feedbacks after cours

Title of the scenario Collecting informal feedbacks after cours
Brief introduction The main idea is to let pupils free to add comments and suggestions at the end of one course.
Teachers prepare a wiki space concerning a course. At the end of the course, they give the possibility to give feedbacks of the session and structure the comments into different categories or subjects.
Keywords describing the topic of the scenario Collectively writing feedbacks

Application in educational context

Has this learning scenario already been practiced in lessons? Give examples of the learning scenario in use:

  • Add a reference link. It could be a reference to the performed lesson or a an evaluation of the performed lesson
  • Name of school or institution? 
  • Number of students?
  • Relevant contact persons
This scenario has been used within the eLearning platform CyberLearn of the HES-SO (University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland). The platform is a moodle based one. The access is restricted to students and teachers.
There are a public of more or less 20'000 students.
Targeted educational sector:
  1. primary and secondary education
  2. higher education
  3. professional training
  4. adult training
All targets publics
Learners' special characteristics e.g. students:
  • who are deaf
  • from rural areas
  • detached from the labor market 
  • with exquisite digital skills

Learning subject/ field e.g.
  • Wikipedia
  • English
  • Physics
 Concerns any educational subjet
Specific educational objectives e.g. make students acquire:
  • writing skills
  • basic knowledge on Roman toponyms and the Celtic culture
  • source criticism
  • cooperation skills
writing skills, complementary information
Narrative/sequential description of the learning activities (Important! Could be a longer text)

This scenario has been applied at the end of ICT courses for engineers of HES-SO (Group of 12-25 people) within the eLearning sessions of CyberLearn platform (moodle)

A wiki page is created for each course. These page were meant to host feedbacks of each course. The choice of topics is free and there is also place to suggestions, advices or simply comments.

Teachers must encourage students to build a structured information. Usually they give 10-15 min. to this exercise.

Learning resources involved e.g.
  • books
  • online resource like wiki site to acquire knowledge from, e.g.
    • Wikipedia
    • Wikimedia Commons 
    • Ekopedia  
    • JurisPedia
  • search engines
Wiki application to create content (not to confuse with "Learning resources involved") Which wiki software do the students use to create content, that is, writing and collaborating? Wiki software could for example mean:
  • Stand-alone wiki application like:
    • MediaWiki (which is used for Wikimedia projects like Wikipedia, Wiktionary etc)
    • DokuWiki
    • FosWiki
    • XWiki
  • Wikifarm application like:
    • Wikispaces
    • PBWorks
    • Wikidot
    • Referata
    • Wikia

Clarification: wiki application versus wiki online learning resource 

You can use Wikipedia both as a learning resource to aquire knowledge from, but also as a working tool where you do your assignment (if students have user accounts on Wikipedia and the assignment for example is to improve articles on Wikipedia). Then Wikipedia is the learning resource and MediaWiki (which Wikipedia is built upon) is used as a wiki application to create content.

Another option is to use Wikipedia as a learning resource but for example Wikispaces as a working tool for the class where they report their findings about Wikipedia. Then Wikipedia is the learning resource and Wikispaces is used as a wiki application to create content.


Other ICT applications involved e.g. standard computing programs like
  • spreadsheets
  • graphics software
Infrastructure / equipment e.g.
  • Internet connection
  • microphone
  • camera
Prerequisite competences e.g. to be familiar with
  • English writing
  • linear algebra
Evaluation approach e.g.
  • peer-to-peer assessment
  • test (teacher evaluate) 
  • revision tracking
  • group assessment
 Global information/feedback an its structure
Typical learning time e.g.
  • How many sessions? 
  • How long sessions? 
 10-15 min after a course.
Temporal mode "Synchronous interaction" and / or "Asynchronous interaction"  Synchronous
Typical learning location e.g.
  • Classroom with computers
  • Classroom without computers
  • Outside the classroom. Where?
  • At home
 Classroom with computers or eLearning cofiguration
