Research has validated the value of timely and effective feedback in supporting successful student learning. Best practices indicate that faculty feedback is crucial to correcting student errors and motivating learning. How can online faculty provide timely and effective feedback that will also cultivate online connections with faculty? Do students value a personal approach to coaching their performance on assignments?
Using video to provided student feedback can address a variety of online instructional issues: student engagement required by accrediting bodies, the “Red Pen” effect of noting only errors, support in providing both formative and summative evaluation and comments. Students enjoy the personal attention and focus on the quality of their work. This presentation will explore a variety of easy to use tools and techniques for providing video as a feedback tool in the online classroom.
• Review the importance of timely feedback in the instruction process.
• Evaluate strategies for providing timely and effective video feedback to their students.
• Discuss research supporting the use of video feedback tools to support effective learning in the online classroom.
