Abstract

In many graduate and undergraduate courses, instructors attempt to go “beyond the textbook” by assigning research papers for the students to read and briefly summarize, in order to bring the students a more complete and state-of-the-art understanding of their field. Typically these summaries are not used after being graded. We claim that these summaries are an unexplored treasure of information that can provide an important connection between the core course content found in a textbook and more recent trends that can only be distilled from research literature. To provide all students access to this accumulated treasure of information, we have developed Collaborative Paper Exchange (CoPE) - a system that allows the student to submit their assigned summaries and browse those submitted by others. This paper presents the system and summarizes the results of the first classroom study of this system.
