    16. 16. Activity <ul><li>Discuss in groups of 2/3 </li></ul><ul><li>Which Dropbox settings do you think are most useful for you and why? </li></ul>Image Source: http://www.flickr.com/photos/darkmoming/3825139765/sizes/l/in/photostream/ 17 March 2011
    17. 17. What is eFeedback? <ul><li>eFeedback refers to the electronic provision of marks and feedback to students. </li></ul><ul><li>Marking and feedback is still done by a marker but using different formats for feedback such as digital text, audio and video. </li></ul><ul><li>It is usually delivered back to the student via digital means. </li></ul>Image Source: http://www.flickr.com/photos/blentley/4431297010/ 17 March 2011
    18. 18. What benefits are there compared to traditional methods? <ul><li>Allows you to offer feedback in different formats to suit different needs </li></ul><ul><li>Allows feedback to be tracked, stored and collated more efficiently also providing an archive and overview of the feedback history on individual students </li></ul><ul><li>Automated features of word processors: word count and editing of text (highlight, copy, paste). Helps to reuse comments. </li></ul><ul><li>Eliminates printing costs </li></ul><ul><li>Faster return of scripts and feedback </li></ul><ul><li>Improved legibility of comments received </li></ul><ul><li>Permanent electronic copy of feedback available </li></ul>17 March 2011
    19. 19. Any barriers? <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul>Image Source: http://www.flickr.com/photos/blentley/4605774782/sizes/l/in/photostream/ 17 March 2011
