Abstract

This poster describes the findings to date of a project involving nine language tutors and 47 students. The tutors used Jing to make screencasts (recordings of the computer screen with an audio commentary) of themselves correcting students' written language assignments in Microsoft Word. Data was gathered by means of feedback questionnaires completed by the tutors and seven students. Initial findings suggest students found this feedback more personal and more motivating. Tutors considered it more personal and able to convey 'softer' feedback and considered that the step by step annotations might be less overwhelming for students. Further research will be conducted via follow-up interviews with the seven students and analysing the type of feedback provided by the tutors using Jing with reference to all 47 assignments and feedback.
