The tool provides detailed analytics on student participation in discussion assignments. The teacher can observe which student participated in discussions and see the engagement of their input received by their peers.
Teachers have extensive filtering and sorting options within the tool. They can quickly find relevant discussion input based on the tool's wide-range filtering and sorting options.
Teachers can combine discussion assignments with mandatory peer argument review. This way, students can receive formative feedback on their argumentation from their peers and get the learning benefits of both pedagogies.
The tool enables students to write a reflection on the reviews they get from their teacher on their discussion. This helps students to understand their improvement points better.
All of our tools offering market-leading integration (LTI and API) for your online learning environment.
Discussion Assignment allows teachers to replicate a physical classroom and leverage the interactions in an online environment. Online discussions can help to teach students discussion and writing skills.
Organizing an open-ended discussion will sharpen students’ thinking and argumentation. In Discussion Assignment, the flow of debate is organized in such a way that it also includes the learning benefits of peer review and self-reflection.
The AI-tool Automated Feedback on writing gives students instant feedback on the quality of academic writing in assignments, thesis, and other deliverables. Students improve their academic writing skills by receiving direct in-line feedback, resulting in more permanent and actionable learning. As importantly, the tool also reduces the time spent on assignment review for teachers, allowing them to reallocate their time on providing feedback on the content rather than the form.
This tool has been co-created following the Edtech Dotank process together with our partners.

We support various document, video, audio, image file types as well as website links and others.
While both are based on students' own work, peer review focuses on peers assessing the skill of peers based on criteria provided. Discussion Assignment, on the other hand, focuses on peers discussing the work of peers without specific criteria.
