How to improve feedback using audio and video


Using videos, structured sets of annotated still images and sound recordings can be a great way to provide feedback.

This is particularly true when the work you are assessing is an event or performance of a task: when you want to know how well an apprentice changed a washer, not how well they wrote it up afterwards - or when written responses are a barrier rather than an enabler because of reading, language, physical or other difficulties.

This module looks at how you can try out these media and adopt them into your practice to improve the quality of feedback to your learners.


This module will show you how you can improve feedback by using images, audio and video.


After completing this module, you will be able to:

• determine the benefits and challenges of incorporating images, video and sound files into feedback in your own practice
• identify learning contexts and situations where images, video and sound files will improve the quality of feedback you deliver to learners.

Digital Teaching Professional Framework

This module covers the DTPF component - E1a : Assessment and feedback with peer feedback illustrations

  • Use digital assessment tools to monitor the learning process and obtain information on learners' progress.
  • Use digital technologies to enhance formative assessment strategies, e.g. using classroom response systems, quizzes, games.
  • Use digital technologies to enhance formative and summative assessment in tests, e.g. through computer-based tests, implementing audio or video (e.g. in language learning), using simulations or subject-specific digital technologies as test environments.
  • Use digital technologies to scaffold learners' assignments and their assessment, e.g. through ePortfolios.
  • Use a variety of digital and non-digital assessment formats and be aware of their benefits and drawbacks.
  • Critically reflect on the appropriateness of digital assessment approaches and adapt strategies accordingly.

Taking note of your feedback
We greatly appreciate the time taken to provide us with feedback on each module. We regularly review all the feedback provided and use it to inform the development of new modules. Subject to funds being available and other constraints, we will amend existing modules where feedback shows this is required.

Makes a few good points on quality of feedback and immediacy of task. Could certainly improve/develop learner engagement too.  Report this review
