Providing video feedback for student assignments isn’t necessarily a new concept.

3 Time-Saving Ways to Give Assignment Feedback with Video (and keep online students engaged)

There are several articles out there that show how instructors give assignment feedback through video in their online courses. What is new is my experience-based realization that video assignment feedback not only saves time, but it’s significantly better for keeping online students engaged in my course.

When they’re hundreds of miles away and may not ever get to see me face-to-face, providing personalized, visual feedback for student work can make it more meaningful, especially in an online learning environment. The comments I’ve received from students are overwhelmingly positive and appreciative for this assignment feedback compared to only receiving written comments in their graded paper or in the rubric.

I find it similar to having a one-on-one meeting or conversation with the student, but I’m not sitting there right beside them.

Screencasting Feedback on Student Essays. Last semester I was faced with a larger-than-usual senior composition class for English majors—which of course also meant a larger-than-usual feedback load.

Screencasting Feedback on Student Essays

With a new baby at home, I was more than a little concerned about finding the time to do it all. Fully aware of the research (e.g. Ferris, 1997; Hyland & Hyland, 2006) that favors more detailed feedback on student writing (seems “awkward: reword” just doesn’t cut it), I could not in good conscience consider reducing the quality or quantity of the feedback I usually give. Moreover, my feedback would typically include holding “writing conferences” (one-on-one consultations) with students—usually during office hours. But this was a big class, and there are just so many hours in a day.

I knew something had to give. Having already tested the limits of the physical word, I turned to the virtual one. Which software did I use? What was the feedback process?
