USE THESE RESOURCES TO LEARN HOW TO
  • Use Screencast-O-Matic to provide targeted feedback to students;
  • Change the qualitative nature of feedback;
  • Improve student perception and use of feedback.

“Students don’t understand the nuances within written feedback, whereas when they listen to our voices and the way we talk things through, they find out exactly what we are trying to get across to them.”

Tutor

“I prefer this feedback rather than written feedback as it is more personal to me and my writing. I can listen to the feedback over and over again to get the next part right.”
