The WebPA (Web Peer Assessment) tool is used to generate peer moderated marks for group work. The WebPA tool was introduced at Edinburgh via 2 JISC funded projects that sought to prove LTI integration with the VLE. The number of courses using the tool was modest, though the tool has been important to those courses using it. Over the last 2 years usage of the tool has expanded, and it is now under consideration for use by the Undergraduate Medical programme. We wish to move WebPA from its current hosting environment (CHOST) to a more managed LAMP environment, and bring it under the application management and change control processes provided by IS Apps Production Management, benefitting from improved monitoring, longer backups, and a larger pool of colleagues who can assist in supporting it.
WebPA is an open source tool developed by Loughborough University. It is a PHP application that relies on a MySQL database. It is not EASE authenticated – the only access to the tool for users is via an LTI connection from the Learn or Moodle VLEs. No changes are required to this.
