Here is an example of the type of video feedback that I would give a student on their project - what's working, what's not, how they can improve, and reiterating that they have a chance to make changes before the end-of-semester project, which is an instructor & peer evaluation of the end product:
This student had done quite poorly on the first assignment (I’d had him the previous semester for another class, so I knew he was generally a good student), but thanked me profusely for the video feedback, and really turned it around on the second assignment.
Here is the same student, on the second project assignment:
Do you notice the change in the quality of the work?
Do you notice the change in the type of feedback?
BOTH OF THESE VIDEOS WERE RECORDED USING TECHSMITH'S SNAGIT (Education pricing is about $30 for a license), but there are many other screencasting tools available to you out there! Screencast-o-matic is another one I would definitely recommend, because it is ridiculously intuitive and easy to use, and there is a FREE version that quite likely has all the features that you would need.
Once you've mastered screencasting with either of these simple tools, you may want to consider assigning screencasts for student assignments!
If you would like assistance with Screencast-o-matic or any other screencasting tool, or if you have questions about other topics, come by the CTLA (Room MSQ150).
