I like the sound of that – Audio feedback via the VLE: A mechanism for more effective feedback?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This study aims to ascertain student and staff attitudes to and perceptions of audio feedback made available via the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) for various types of assessment. Consistent with action research and reflective practice this study identifies best practice, highlighting issues in relation to implementation with the intention of redesigning activities in light of the findings. It utilises four case studies where audio feedback is provided to students using the Wimba voice authoring tool within Blackboard Learn+ for various different types of formative and summative assessment feedback. The intention is to identify where audio feedback via the VLE is effective and why this will be researched via a combination of techniques including a survey, focus groups of staff and students and staff reflective logs. Based on these insights the findings will be disseminated as best practice to other colleagues in the HE sector, in particular focusing on where it is most effective in relation to assessment and feedback i.e. summative and formative, at what level and for which types of assessment.
