  • 43. Feedback<br />…taken to the assignment tasks like “ducks to water” and I have not heard one complaint from any of them. I find all this student activity quite amazing…<br />Student motivation to learn and self assess has improved. They are learning more independently.<br />The immediate benefit that I experienced with Desire2Learn was the paperless assessments. Being able to access students work from home without have to take it home was great. A definite time saver.<br />There have been no problems reported to me by staff or students associated with not understanding how to use the software…<br />Problems were related to equipment and space, the usual problems…<br />Initial problems with students not accessing ePortfolio– this was improved with the addition of formative assessment/class activities built around ePortfolio<br />Some anxiety around using ePortfolios. Resolved with regular small training bite sessions.<br />
