A good approach for a large volume of work!
If we created a simple Web-based repository, we could allow a student to first work on drafts of their assignment, then open it up to their professor or a TA for initial review, then open it up to the class to exchange their work with their classmates and participate in peer review. Outstanding work could be surfaced at wider levels of availability.Scott, D. (2007/2015). Research across the curriculum (blog post).
