The Internet has enabled us to expand how and where we learn, and in many cases, when. In an era where the classroom has aggrandized beyond four walls, implementing online assessment strategies has never been easier. Online technology has endorsed exciting shifts in pedagogical practice for design education, generating unique opportunities to connect students with one another to critique and assess the development of their work. This paper presents three ways in which the authors have implemented the use of online peer assessment to enrich their design courses and discusses how these activities enhance the learning experience.
