Abstract

It is already known that some collaborative assessment processes can provide students not only the possibility to show how well they have understood knowledge content, but also the opportunity to enhance and increase such knowledge. Such learning activities also allow instructors to diagnose the quality of the instructional process. However there is evidence that this type of activities involve an important effort. This article presents a mobile learning environment named digital workbook, which was designed to support students and instructors when applying a Collaborative Examination Technique. The tool was evaluated in a Computer Science undergraduate course, and the obtained results are highly encouraging.
