|Title||A new direction in feedback|
This paper looks at an innovative way of providing feedback for students on their written assignments. Screen capture software allows you to record all screen activity on your computer screen as if you had a video camera pointed at it. If a microphone is attached to your computer it can also record your voice. The result is that students work can be opened onto a computer screen, the screen capture software can be turned on and the teacher can begin to correct the word on the screen, highlighting mistakes, underlining problems and writing comments. The resulting video can then be sent back to the students , resulting in a ‘live’ recording of the tutor correcting the students work. The student can play back the video and listen and watch as the tutor goes through their written assignments. The idea was originally reported on in the THES in December 2006 (Stannard 2006).
