More and more people are getting involved in online learning. Many MOOCs are emerging, yet very few of them are really empowering their students. Most courses are created by one teacher, who "knows the subject", and students have to make assignments. What if we took the opportunity to create a real online democracy of knowledge? What if, as a real part of the learning process, students taught to each other?
Peer assessments are just the beginning of a brave new world!
1) Understand how an online community of learners work: what they expect and what you can expect from them.
2) Encourage teachers to delegate more of the learning process to students.
3) Be able to make the best use of peer-to-peer assignments for an online course.
