FeedbackFruits offers tools that enable you to make interactive content, give instant feedback to students, both during and after lectures, and allow students to discuss and share course material. Developed by TU Delft students, this tool is ideal for engaging your students with the course content, making them actively involved in discussions and feedback.
How to add FeedbackFruits to your course
Once FeedbackFruits has been made active in your course, go to the Content-tab, click on Existing activities and then choose it from the list of tools available. Further instructions on how to link the needed tools to your course can be found in this page, here.

Skill Review facilitates teacher feedback on activities such as presentations, oral exams or an interview.

When setting up your course, make sure to read the FeedbackFruits support website. They give detailed information on how to set up the tool and choices you need to make to properly set up the chosen tool. Take the following into account:
- After changing users and groups in Brightspace, make sure to open the FeedbackFruits tool again, so groups can be synchronized properly.
- Preferably, don’t make changes to groups that are in active Feedbackfruits assignments. If you do need to make changes, make sure the end result is what you intended, i.e. make sure to check the grades properly.
- If you make changes to an assignment or to results, make sure the correct grades are published to Brightspace. Republish the grades after making changes in Brightspace.
- The FeedbackFruits support page has many really good support articles. We advise you to check their site and read the articles about the tools you are setting up. Two specific articles you should not miss:
