We've had some experience providing local and cloud-based hosted services to other universities, and there are a number of legal barriers around data protection, student consent, service levels, and business continuity that you have to cross before sending university data, particularly student information, to such third party data processors - and that's just within the UK/EU.



Using TEAMMATES' website as an example, I couldn't see any mention of the legal implications of using their service anywhere, or where the data is held.  It's outside the EU, I guess?   I'd also guess that, at the very least, you'd need to upload the students' names and email addresses to the system, so you'd definitely want to run it past your legal department and IT Services before taking up such a service.



I'm not suggestion Southampton haven't done their due diligence and got the necessary data processing agreements signed, etc.  I just wanted to make the community aware that you can't just signup to a cloud service and upload a student list.  You'll get yourself into a world of trouble if you're not careful!

We've run a successful pilot of large-scale peer assessment (200 students in 50 teams) using the TEAMMATES system, freely provided and supported by the National University of Singapore, which runs on Google cloud servers: https://teammatesv4.appspot.com/index.jsp 



So far it has proved 100% reliable and, to my mind, offers much greater ease of use and flexibility than WebPA. The downside is that it is not integrated with your VLE, but uploading the lists of students/groups was not too taxing, and editing those groups as students left/joined the course was a simple task. The students do not need to create or use Google accounts (unless they want some extra functionality) since the system sends automated emails with personal login links.
