  • Any barriers?
    • Increased time in front of a computer screen for staff and students
    • Reduced ease of marking in variety of locations without access to laptop / wireless connectivity etc
    • Dependent on computer systems’ reliability
    • May need to revise admin processes to accommodate eSubmission
    • Can be storage capacity limitations with submission via email

  • Why would I use it?
    • Make it easier for students to submit their work on time to a specified deadline
    • Make the process for submission visible to all staff
    • To make the process of submission consistent across a group of students.

  • What is eFeedback?
    • eFeedback refers to the electronic provision of marks and feedback to students.
    • Marking and feedback is still done by a marker but using different formats for feedback such as digital text, audio and video.
    • It is usually delivered back to the student via digital means.

  • What benefits are there compared to traditional methods?
    • Allows you to offer feedback in different formats to suit different needs
    • Allows feedback to be tracked, stored and collated more efficiently also providing an archive and overview of the feedback history on individual students
    • Automated features of word processors: word count and editing of text (highlight, copy, paste). Helps to reuse comments.
    • Eliminates printing costs
    • Faster return of scripts and feedback
    • Improved legibility of comments received
    • Permanent electronic copy of feedback available
    17 March 2011
  • Any barriers?
    • The need for a computer, software and an internet connection means that marking effectively becomes less ‘portable’, although the use of laptops and wireless technology mitigate against this.
    • Marking entirely on-screen, some may find it more difficult to make quick comparisons between candidates’ work, or to ‘flick through’ a pile of scripts.

  • Case Study – Providing video Feedback
    • School of Social Sciences - Fiona Boyd
    • Social Work Health & Social Care and Counselling
    • Working with practitioners who are busy as they are working while studying
    • Felt that often students switched off when they saw a low mark even though it was clear they had great potential
    • Moved from just providing a traditional marking sheet with detailed textual feedback to adding a ‘talking head’ video
    • Helped to provide a human face to feedback provided at a distance
