This study intends to explore how EVA – a web-based platform that allows online video streaming and annotations – can help pre-service teachers in finalizing their web-based learning resource design assignment. Students, in pairs, critiqued two websites developed by their peers, and, at the same time, had their websites evaluated. While navigating their peers’ websites, students’ computer screens and their conversations were recorded. Video recordings were then uploaded to EVA where the students viewed how their websites were navigated and commented. The students found the task practical and engaging. An analysis of students’ feedback comments showed that praise comments outnumbered other types of comments.
