What is it?

  • An Observation is a text-based notation that can be left by authors or students on Phases or Blocks within Phases.

Why is it important?

  • Observations are important because they support asynchronous communication between students and their peers, students and teachers, and teachers and other Collaborators during the authoring process.

  • Observations are key to facilitating the Peer Review process for a particular Phase.

Did you Know?

  • In the case of certain tools such as Markup, authors and students can even leave observations associated with other inputs within a Block, such as the arrow they drew to point out an anomaly.
