To these ends, a survey with both Likert and open-ended questions was issued to CS1 and CS2 students. A favorable student evaluation was observed while several critical viewpoints that inform technology development were revealed. We noticed that besides appreciating the possibility of making comments, many students found benefit from peripheral participation without being active in commenting themselves. Informal communication appared to be preferred, and the commenting technology was considered second to best channel in this regard, following face-to-face interaction.
