  • Iván Pajares SánchezEmail author
Conference paper


This paper outlines a free software based system that enables periodical gathering, selection and grading of the Drawing, Analysis and Ideation art studio course graphic outcome for the 1st year level in architecture; it also tackles the methodology of circulating the graphic selections made, intended as a feedback system among the course group. The proposed system belongs to a social learning strategy through the use of blog(s) and Dropbox as an online repository of the class production. It is consistent with other experiences that discuss the integration of web 2.0 tools and self learning frameworks, but it is specifically focused on the needs of studio workshops and their graphic production.
