It is never thought about or never considered. But now, online discussion forums and discussion boards have become a hot place to get the dissertation reviewed by peers and get their input, suggestion or feedback. By doing so students are saving lot of time and considerable amount of money also. By sharing the dissertation on these online forums, the report can be reviewed by more than one person at a time thereby providing right inputs from these reviewers at the right time. Also by getting it reviewed here there is no need for the student to search for a professional reviewer and pay him/her some bucks.
Apart from reviewing, students can also get inputs on editing, formatting and proof reading from their peers on the forum and discussion boards. These discussion forums will not just have students but also professors, lecturers and subject matter experts also. By interacting with these people who are good at subject will help in adding more meaningful information to the dissertation and also get their feedback and suggestions. By adding more tools and separate sections in these discussion forums, they can be more helpful to students. Online discussions have now become prominent and some of the universities started online dissertation submissions through web conferencing. So technology will surely play a key role in dissertation preparation and submissions.
