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.
