Peer editing is a proven technology to help students improve their writing. Unfortunately, face to face peer editing in a large classroom quickly becomes unwieldy.

We have developed a Web-based system for online peer editing using Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat for document markup. The instructor must provide editing guidelines specific to the document. This system has been successfully deployed at UCSC.
