|Chapter title||Screen capture software for feedback in language education|
This paper looks at an innovative way of providing feedback for students on written assignments. Screen capture software allows students to record all screen activity on their computer screen as if they had a video camera pointed at it. If a microphone is attached to computers it can also record students’ voices. 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 work 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.
