FeedbackFruits

Last updated on 2 December 2022
With Feedbackfruits you create attractive interactive digital education with a rich form of feedback and peer feedback.

FeedbackFruits is an addition to the digital learning environment Canvas of the VU. Where Canvas offers basic functionalities, FeedbackFruits offers more extensive and advanced possibilities to shape interaction and feedback. FeedbackFruits works consistently for the different functions. 

Didactics

FeedbackFruits is extremely suitable to support active blended learning and fits very well in the Flipped Classroom approach to education design. With FeedbackFruits you can give students specific assignments to prepare for lectures or workgroups. As a teacher you can follow what the students do and where they still have problems with the material. During the lecture or workgroup, FeedbackFruits allows you to go into depth much faster.
