Welcome to the Expertiza project!
The Expertiza project is software to create reusable learning objects through peer review. It also supports team projects, and the submission of almost any document type, including URLs and wiki pages.
Short Powerpoint introductions
- My presentation on using Expertiza to support wiki-textbook creation, at the 2011 EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative conference, February 15, 2011
- My plenary talk at the Purdue TLT Conference on April 22, 2009
- We invite you to view the original rationale for the system.
- You can walk through a virtual demo of the system.
- A prose rendition of the rationale was published in Innovate in 2007. (To view it, you need to register, and you will receive e-mail each time a new issue of this very interesting and useful journal is published.)
- Other papers on Expertiza can be found here.
- An overview of Expertiza ("Software support for teamwork and authentic assessment (slides)") from the TLT Group's Friday Live, September 24, 2010
- Student-authored wiki textbooks: Composition and review from the 2011 Global Education Consortium, November 18, 2011
- This session from EDUCAUSE ELI 2011 describes how Expertiza can be used to review wiki-textbook contributions. It is an earlier version of the presentation above that includes a live demo.
- This Innovate Webcast from July 2007 includes the rationale and a demo of the system.
- A six-minute interview from the 2009 Lilly Conference on College Teaching describes the goals and realization of the project. (Note: Background noise may be distracting.)
- This Innovate Ideagora discussion from January 2009 describes the social-networking features planned for Expertiza.
- Forming and managing student teams and peer feedback in Expertiza, a presentation at the UNC TLT conference in March 2009.
- An instructor manual, explaining how to create an deploy an assignment in Expertiza.
- An instructor video, slightly dated, showing how to create and deploy an assignment
- A guide for Creating_Custom_Rubric
- For students, a Powerpoint or PDF presentation explaining how to submit and review an assignment with Expertiza.
- For students, a video showing how to use the system to submit and review an assignment.
- For students, a Powerpoint or PDF presentation explaining how to submit and review wiki pages with Expertiza.
- For students, a Powerpoint or PDF presentation explaining how to form teams and sign up for topics.
Expertiza now has a Java dependency, so the machine you are using to develop Expertiza on should have the JVM installed.
