Thank you... I am very happy to learn a new, easy way to respond in a much more time efficient way with my students! Audio feedback will help me give more personal responses to my students.

This was extremely well done. I have used audio feedback using a different software but had no idea it was so easy with Acrobat. Thank you!

Allowing for audio feedback is a great way to make a connection with students whose basic learning style is audio as opposed to visual. I think all students would benefit from verbal feedback as it is in a recognizable voice and makes a more personal connection than writing on their paper. If you cannot give them verbal comments directly, I would say this method is the next best one.

I know this is mostly geared toward grading essays, but I teach Digital Design and ask my students to turn their PSD and AI files oftentimes into PDF to submit for grading as the file sizes are faster to open and smaller in file size. After seeing this video, it provides me a way to give feedback to students that I was not able to give in the past. I will surely share this information with colleagues. I have used the annotations in the past, but talking beats typing-- hands down (no pun intended).

This would be such a time saver. It is a personal touch for the students as well and saves all the red pen markings!

This is amazing because I spent so much time marking up pdfs in the past and and audio will be a time saver and more personable. I will include this in my acrobat training to faculty.

The Video link froze, but I was able to download the file and liked what I saw. I will be sure to include in my future trainings.

Fantastic!!! What more can I say other than when you have a class of long assignments to evaluate you do not use a full pen of red ink. The turn around time from deadline to papers being returned should be MUCH shorter and therefore more meaningful to the student.

I have to say this is pretty cool. I did not know this was possible in Acrobat. I could see myself teaching this to the other educators as part of the Professional Day or them!

I was not able to play the video linked in the Resources (3) link. I have the web link to tutorials, and the download to the audio embedding in pdf files but I could not play the video. It is just a black screen.
