Active Role

This pattern was originally written for teachers to help students, but it could also be used by students directly if the pattern was adapted accordingly.


It is difficult to assess a project if one was involved in the project’s progress. Therefore, to receive objective FEEDBACK, one to three persons, who were not involved in the project, can be asked to assess it (Harashima et al., 2014, p. 7).

Example for Technological Support

FEEDBACK could be given either through comments or in an online forum (in text, audio or video).
