A peer feedback system 

Eduflow is an online tool that helps instructors facilitate peer feedback activities for students. With the tool, students can submit different types of assignments including written assignments, website products, and video recordings. The tool automates the feedback process by distributing the students' responses to other students, who then provide feedback based on criteria set by the instructor. Eduflow also allows for acting on the feedback by allowing students to reflect on their feedback and potentially resubmit their response. 

Eduflow is a newer version of Peergrade. Access to Peergrade closes on June 30th for AU employees, and we recommend that peer feedback activities be moved to Eduflow instead. 

Access to Eduflow:


Eduflow is integrated with your course in Brightspace. You can add it to your course page by: 

  • Selecting "Add Existing" or "Create New" 

  • Then choosing "External Tool Activity" 

  • And choosing “Eduflow”. 


By completing activities in Eduflow through your course in Brightspace, students' user information from Brightspace will automatically be transferred to Eduflow.However, students are not enrolled in the activity in Eduflow until they actively click the link to Eduflow through the course in Brightspace. 

Note: Peergrade and Eduflow will be shut down

The tools are accessible until the autumn semester of 2023. The provider behind the platforms has been acquired, and the products are being removed from the market. CED is working to find a new provider to support peer feedback activities at AU.

Use the tool for:

  • Facilitating peer feedback both in and outside of class. 

  • Automating the distribution of assignments and feedback. 

  • Setting deadlines and the number of peers per student. 

  • Structuring criterion-based feedback using rubrics. 

  • Submissions and feedback can be done individually or in groups. 

  • Access Eduflow through Brightspace so that students are automatically created in Eduflow. 

Tool features (and activities)


A rubric is a guide to help students in their feedback. It gives the instructor opportunity to ensure academic and qualified feedback. The extent of this rubric is up to the instructor. The rubric is used when students give feedback on others' assignments by noting their feedback in the rubric as a response to the criteria or questions posed by the instructor in the rubric. Read more about rubrics here.

Group submissions

The instructor can allow students to submit in groups and choose whether to give feedback as a group, meaning one group gives feedback to another group. As an instructor, you can also choose for students to submit as a group but give feedback individually and vice versa. 


You can set deadlines for all types of activities in Eduflow and at any time change the deadline, etc. for each individual student, and for example, extending the response or feedback deadline. 

Reflections (Feedback reflections)

In Eduflow, you can also get the students to act on their feedback by asking a series of questions for reflection after their feedback activity and resubmitting their response based on their reflections. 

Submission types

Students can submit different types of files, web links, and record a video directly in Eduflow as a response to an assignment. 


You can create categories that the students choose or that you divide them into. This allows for differentiated teaching with, for example, the choice of category based on difficulty, subject, expertise, or academic level. With categories, you can easily get a group of students to give feedback on each other's submissions within the same category. 


Students can receive feedback in different ways in Eduflow. On the one hand, you can facilitate peer feedback (where the students give each other feedback). On the other hand, you or other teachers on the team can give feedback. Additionally, the students can give themselves feedback. One feedback activity does not exclude another, and the activities can be linked together. 

The feedback can either be written or in video format by filling in the rubric, or it can be close to text in the form of comments and corrections in the student's text if the task response is an editable link, for example, Word Online. 

Use Eduflow in your teaching

Below, you can find examples of learning activities that you can use as a starting point or be inspired by when using Eduflow. 

How does Eduflow work?

Simply explained, Eduflow works by:

  • The teacher sets up a task. Here, among other things, deadlines can be selected, how many each student should give feedback to, and whether it is an individual or group hand-in. 

    The students respond to the task and upload their work to Eduflow. Eduflow then arranges the students crosswise so that they can give feedback to each other's tasks. 

    The teacher can always give feedback to the students. This is particularly relevant if some students do not give the feedback they were supposed to. Therefore, it is also a good idea for each student to give feedback to at least two others. This increases the likelihood that all will receive feedback from at least one other student. 

  • The students respond and comment on the feedback received in Eduflow. 

  • The teacher has full overview of the feedback tasks in Eduflow. 


Eduflow helps you facilitate peer feedback, where students give feedback on each other's work. The intention of this form of feedback is to improve the students' performance and their ability to evaluate their own and others' work. This helps students understand what is perceived as high-quality work, while training them to argue their viewpoints. Furthermore, peer feedback provides the opportunity to increase the amount of feedback received on written work throughout a semester.

From Peergrade to Eduflow

  • In the guide you will find a video that explains how to create a peer feedback activity in Eduflow. Please note that user creation and course creation takes place automatically when you access Eduflow through your course in Brightspace. So you can ignore the first part of the video regarding access and creation: https://www.loom.com/share/35c8b11e57b143fab7ed600206c4aa02

2. Create a Peer review flow or a peer and self review flow

This guide shows you how to use the two most used flows in Eduflow. A flow is the process that students must complete in order to be part of the peer feedback. The two flows reviewed here are "peer review flow" and "peer and self review flow".

4. Students do not exist in Eduflow/ Unable to add students

If you cannot add a student to your flow in Eduflow, it often turns out that the student does not yet have a user in Eduflow. To get a user in Eduflow, the student simply has to select Eduflow when you as a teacher have created an Eduflow element in the Content menu. Subsequently, you as a teacher can add them to the relevant flow.

Guides for moving courses from Peergrade to EduFlow

2. Manual download of export packages to own computer

This guide shows you how to download all the data contained in Peergrade to your computer. Please note that this data cannot be transferred to EduFlow and that the data from Peergrade comes out in raw form and therefore they must be processed before you can extract a context from the files you receive.
