6 BEFORE WE REVIEW HOW IT WAS DONE. What are your initial thoughts?

7 Outline of the process

8 Submission 1 The student prepares their work in electronic form. 2 The student work is uploaded to the VLE 3. The student receives an electronic submission receipt. Outline of the process

9 Marking 4. The lecturer opens the student work, initiates the capture software, and starts recording the marking session. 5. The lecturer can add…... - a voice over, move the mouse pointer, highlight text, show other movies and text files, images, type comments - Pause and re-start the recording 6. When the marking session is finished the lecturer stops the recording and uploads the personalised video to the VLE. Outline of the process

10 Feedback 7. The student downloads the video from the Virtual Learning Environment and can view it on Windows Media Player. They watch it again and again and again. Outline of the process

16 THE RESEARCH TO BACK UP THE CONCEPT It is not the answer for everyone.

17 HIGHER EDUCATION;NOV2012, VOL. 64 ISSUE 5, P593 Student feedback via screen capture digital video: stimulating student's modified action Link to ebsco

18 Abstract A new technique of providing assessment feedback to students is demonstrated via a case study of overseas MBA and undergraduate Accounting and IT students. The feedback method uses inexpensive and widely available screen capture digital video technology; it gives the student an impression of being present during the marking process. In addition it enables the tutor to provide a richer range of feedback. Feedback via screen capture digital video takes engagement of the two parties, tutor and student, to a higher level of effective communication and helps avoid un dialogue de sourds through its qualities of being rich, natural and personal.

19 un dialogue de sourds Students complain of a lack of adequate feedback Tutors claim that students fail to heed the advice given. The French have an apt phrase: un dialogue de sourds: literally a conversation between deaf people, metaphorically people who cannot, or do not want to understand each other.

20 The Method The feedback method uses inexpensive and widely available screen capture digital video technologies. The student gets the impression that the tutor is present even when the video feedback is played at distance. It enables the lecturer to provide a richer range of feedback

21 Outline Background Description of method Where it has been used so far User responses and evaluations What is required to use it?

22 Examples Numerical - Spreadsheet Diagrammatical – Analysis and Design model Programming Textual - Reflection Sheet

23 Applications to date Where it has been used so far –5 modules in IT department Office Applications, Multimedia, Programming, Analysis Design Techniques, Database over 800 student assessment –1 module for Accountants –2 modules on MBA (Project Management, Health Informatics) Demonstrated in workshops to 30 lecturers at UWIC Demonstrated to 1 franchise UWIC university HEA summer seminar attended by over 120 delegates 2010.

25 Undergraduate Feedback

26 Quantitative findings Respondents were asked to indicate how, Strongly/slightly Agree Strongly/slightl y Disagree Q4. I know what I have to do in order to improve with the information given in the feedback 100%- Q5. I Could do with some more feedback on the work33%67% Q9. I Know what I have done poorly in addition to what I did well with the details given in my feedback 98%2% Q10. I found the feedback helpful and clear100%- Q11. I think that feedback I received reflects my mark98%2% Q6. I feel that I deserved the mark I had for this work90%10% Q2. It is clear from the video feedback where I have lost marks96%4% Table 1 Perception of Feedback Content Respondents were asked to indicate how, Strongly/slightl y Agree Strongly/slight ly Disagree Q7. The commentary on the video was more important than the image 82%18% Q8. The typed comments clearly told me where I had lost marks86%14% Q12. I prefer feedback on paper rather than on-line2%98% Q13. The video and sound quality was very good90%10% Q14. Listening and watching the video was a bad experience2%98% Q3. Downloading the video did not take long to do96%4% Table 2 The Video/Podcast as a Medium Figures indicate that the medium was positively received. The only significant split in the respondents was for Question 5. A higher proportion agreed that tutors provided enough feedback.

27 Quantitative findings Written Medium QuestionsVideo/PodcastWritten Respondents were asked to indicate how,Strongly/slightly Agree Strongly/slightly Disagree Strongly/slightly Agree Strongly/slightly Disagree Q5. I Could do with some more feedback on the work -100%56%44% Q12. I prefer feedback on paper rather than on-line -100%33%67% Table 3 Feedback Medium Assessment Comparison Thought sample group is small to generalise, for Question 5 over 50% of those who received written feedback still wanted more, while those who received video feedback clearly did not.

28 Qualitative findings Description of Main CategoriesDescriptive Categories qualities of feedbackgood feedback poor feedback qualities wanted in feedback control and readiness to use feedbackactions after reading or reviewing feedback personalisation of feedback problems accessing video feedback experience issues feedback types Social Anxiety Control Personalisation The tapes of the two groups were analysed using a constant comparative method

29 MBA Feedback

30 MBA Profile for pilot The same piece of work: a 500 word reflection sheet for a module on Project Management is e-assessed and also assessed manually. Students are then asked to comment on the two methods. Population: 119 students, most from India. Average age: 21

31 MBA Student Feedback Initial results suggest that students enjoy this new form of feedback, and that this encourages the students to learn from the tutor assessment of answers, rather than concentrating only on obtaining marks. There are other advantages: several students mentioned that they felt the presence of the tutor more keenly even if they were interrogating the feedback at distance. (This can be particularly useful if the student happened to be absent or had returned for a time to their home country in the middle of studies).

32 MBA Lecturers Feedback Students arriving in the UK to study at M level in a second language (English) warm to this sort of assessment and assessment feedback. The podcast as a channel has the added advantage of the student being more attentive and engaged with the feedback. Before they would look quickly at the comments and pay a lot of attention to the mark. Now they listen and are talked through the comments and their own text in a fun way. It is no longer a chore or necessary evil to receive feedback and advice. One future research recommendation is to see if there is evidence of correlation between the new channel and student improvement over the semester i.e. is closer attention to the feedback helping the student to do better?

33 Conclusions

34 The Benefits Compared to traditional written annotations on their work: Students may still require a complement of feedback. The students indicated that they preferred feedback lodged on the VLE Video feedback medium as a means of communication with the tutor was positively received. The Lectures voice was more important than the images The Lecturers workload is not increased, and may be reduced. There are particular benefits for distant learning students The feedback medium re-enforces learning in a classroom setting.

35 The Issues The voice can give unintended messages It is difficult for the tutor discussing the work of student 100 and to be as enthusiastic as that for student 1. Tutor must be focused and uninterrupted If the student work is a Fail, the channel may not lend itself to bad news. Need to ensure continuity and fluidity in communication (may need advance preparation) Security? It can be on YouTube the next day!

36 Technical Issues Marking sessions over 10 minutes could take time to upload to the VLE if you are marking from home. The type of video compression used for this does not handle a large variety of colours well and colours may be altered.


38 Demonstration work My name is Nigel Jones I am undertaking research into the experience of scuba divers in the cold waters of the United Kingdom. I am writing to you to ask you to promote a website to aid me in my research (http:\\\). You will see on the web site that most research about recreational diving has been undertaken in warm waters, and that diving regularly in the colder UK waters has been overlooked. I wish to address this oversight and gain an understanding of the cold water diving experience. My interest in the field extends from my own diving experience, I am no longer a regular diver, but achieved my BSAC instructor qualification in 1999 The first stage of the study requires the determination of any sensation seeking traits of divers compared to the general public. Divers visiting the site are asked to complete an international psychological test used to establish sensation seeking traits in many other sports and leisure activities. The 20 forced-choice items takes about 15-20 minutes to complete. The project has been reviewed and approved by the Research Ethics Committee of UWIC and your confidentiality will be completely safeguarded during and after the course of the research.
