Audiovisual feedback

Video or audio feedback is motivating and effective, making it easier for teachers to be more precise and nuanced. Students also appreciate it, as it is easier to highlight positive parts of their work verbally than in text.

The most common type of audiovisual feedback is a combined screen recording and oral review of students' work. The teacher then sends their feedback to the student or group as a video.

Accessible and efficient

Giving feedback using video and audio makes it easier for teachers to be more precise and nuanced. In addition, it usually takes less time than writing long reviews. Teachers also tell us that this method reduces subsequent questions from students, saving time.

The audiovisual feedback format allows the teacher to repeat complex concepts while pointing at them with the screen. This increases accessibility for people with dyslexia, among others.

Motivates students

Feedback in the form of audio and video can be easier to understand and absorb, resulting in a better outcome of student performance. It is easier to give more detailed feedback in spoken form than in text, especially positive feedback. Several students have expressed how they also hear what is good about their assignment when this method is used. It is harder to describe positive parts in writing when you send texts filled with red markings or corrections back and forth to each other.

Audiovisual feedback via video is suitable for both formative and summative feedback. However, the formative one is more common.
