Video can be used to communicate personalized student feedback for course assignments, as well as overall course progress. This can be accomplished by adding a personalized feedback video to the ‘feedback’ area within the Enter Grades screen for Discussions and Dropboxes, as well as items in the Gradebook, or communicate overall course progress by sending a feedback video to their D2L Email.
Why use video to communicate student feedback?
- Strengthen communication skills
- Reach students with a variety of communication preferences
- Help students practice media literacy and critical viewing skills
- Review feedback multiple times, whenever & wherever, at their individual pace
- Increase instructor presence
- Increase instructor/student communication
Types of Student Feedback Videos:
- Assignment Grades & Feedback: Provide a personalized video that discusses the overall assignment grade, as well as specific examples where a student met or exceeded expectations, and specific examples where the student has room for improvement.
- Personal “How-To” Video: Provide a personalized video for a student who might be struggling with a course concept.
- Overall Course Progress Feedback: Provide a personalized video at various points throughout the semester (Week 3, Week 8, Week 13, and Week 16) or after major course milestones (first major exam, mid-term, first major project).
- Is the student behind on any assignments?
- Is there something the student can do to improve their grade?
- Do you have any suggestions for the student?
