Cloudworks is no longer accepting new user registrations, and will be closing down on 24th June 2019. We hope to make a read-only archive of the site available soon after.

This design proposes the creation of an online database of about 200 wide-ranging primary sources. As an assessed activity, students will select one document and use the VLE to write a critical comment on it. They also write a comment on the commentary of another student in their tutor group, and respond to comments on their own commentary. Later, they will use primary sources from the database to answer a set question for their end-of-course assessment. [Paul Lawrence]
