Criteria Descriptors
Peer Reviewer Feedback
Quality of Content

Does the content (writing) make sense?
It makes really good sense.
We could read it easily.
Has the content allowed you to acquire new knowledge (facts) and motivated you to investigate further?
Can you identify any areas which need clarification?
There was the one or two videos that didn't quite make sense because they had no sound but otherwise it was fine.
Pose three questions that have arisen from your reading
How can you buy things with virtual money for tangible things?
How exactly can people communicate?
How would a virtual teacher stop cheating in exams?
Communication / Collaboration

Look at the Discussion pages of the wiki pages - is there effective communication?
Wiki 3-It doesn't seem you really communicated well.Next time you could do better.
Wiki on Education-you did quite well with communication.
Do they need more?
We think you did a pretty good job communicating with each other, especially on the home page for virtual worlds. We noted that on one note one of the teams said that they were mostly communicating over other things than the discussion board. We took this into account and we thought you communicated pretty well.
Are they clear in their messages to each other?
Yes, your teams did well in delivering their messages clearly.
Is there a sense of negotiation and collaboration?
Yes, pretty well.
Does the work appear to be equally shared?
Yes, pretty well.
Does there appear to be any difficulties by one or more members of the team?
Once or twice some team members seemed not to be responding at all but otherwise it was great.
Presentation - Layout and Design

Look closely at the amount and relevance of graphics/images and media - Is there enough? Too much?
We think there were enough images on the wikis except one or two places where an image would have been handy. The rest were perfect.
What kinds of graphics/images and media have been used?
Videos, images.
Do the graphics/images and media used support the content of the project?
Mostly. In the wiki with the videos without any sound at the bottom of the page, it almost detracted because it was mainly repeating was was said at the top of the page and it had no sound.
Do you have any recommendations to improve the layout and design of the project?
