  • 1. Giving ElectronicFeedback In Writing Classes Ms. Caitlin Cornell Haigazian University 2011 Haigazian UniversityLanguage & Technology Workshop
  • 2. Contents   Why is Electronic Feedback Useful?   Intro to MS Word “Comments” Function   Intro to Blackboard “Digital Dropbox” Function   Example: Business English @ HUMs. Caitlin Cornell
  • 3. Why Is Electronic Feedback Useful?   Even if you’re not a fast typist, it saves time/energy (no more muscle cramps in your hand!)   It means you always have a copy ofstudent work (no more photocopying and killing trees!)   You know the time and date ofevery student submission, and a chronological backup copies of student work (as opposed to searching through email folders for one student’s assignment)   It makes students pay attention to Blackboard, and be purposeful in retrieving their feedback   You don’t have to carry 20 essays home with you! (Put them on your USB drive and complete the feedback on your home desktop/laptop computer)Ms. Caitlin Cornell
  • 4. Microsoft Word “Comments”   What are “comments”?   The electronic version of writing in the margins   It creates a little bubble (depending on the version of Word) in which you can type your comment that is specifically linked to a certain part of the textMs. Caitlin Cornell
  • 5. How to use “Comments”   Don’t be alarmed: the directions/instructions change a little bit depending on the version of MS Word you’re using!   For help, visit MS Word support sites   Or, conduct a quick Google search, like “viewing comments in Word”, etc.Ms. Caitlin Cornell
  • 6. Microsoft Word “Comments”Ms. Caitlin Cornell
  • 7. Microsoft Word “Comments” STEP 1: SELECT TEXTMs. Caitlin Cornell
  • 8. Microsoft Word “Comments” STEP 2: INSERT COMMENTMs. Caitlin Cornell
  • 9. Microsoft Word “Comments” EMPTY COMMENT CREATEDMs. Caitlin Cornell
  • 10. Microsoft Word “Comments” STEP 3: TYPE COMMENTMs. Caitlin Cornell
  • 11. Blackboard’s “Digital Dropbox”   Digital Dropbox is a bit easier than email   You don’t have to type any email addresses   You don’t have to search through multiple emails to find the right one to the right student   You can send to multiple students in the same class just by clicking another name   This is great for group projects!Ms. Caitlin Cornell
  • 12. How to Use “Digital Dropbox” (For You)   The instructor accesses it via the “Control Panel”Ms. Caitlin Cornell
  • 13. How to Use “Digital Dropbox” (For You)Ms. Caitlin Cornell

  • 19. How to Use “Digital Dropbox” (For You)Ms. Caitlin Cornell
  • 20. How to Use “Digital Dropbox” (For Students)   Only differences:   Students enter through Course Tools   “Send” can only send to the instructor (not other students)Ms. Caitlin Cornell
  • 21. Example: Business English   Class meets in the computer lab (to facilitate in-class formal letter writing)   Formatting is important in printed letters, and it’s hard to practice this via handwriting   Nothing in business is handwritten anymore   At the end of the class period, students submit their documents via DD   Even though my students have done the submission process successfully many times, I still check their submission before they leave the classroom (to make sure it uploaded properly and is in the correct version for readability on my computer)Ms. Caitlin Cornell
