Peer Promotions as a Method to Identify Quality Content
Gunnarsson, Bjorn Levi; Alterman, Richard
Journal of Learning Analytics, v1 n2 p126-150 2014
Promoting blog content is a social activity--a means of communicating one student's appreciation of another student's work. This article explores the feasibility of using student promotions of content, in a blogosphere, to identify quality content, and implications for students and instructors. We show that students actively and voluntarily promote content, identify quality material with considerable accuracy, and use promotion data to select what to read. We explore the benefits of knowing which students are good and poor predictors of quality content, and what instructors can do with this information in terms of feedback and guidance.
