Using Video Clips to give Students Feedback?

I was wondering if anyone is using video clips to provide feedback to students via any E-Learning systems like Blackboard. I was to start doing this in the Fall but wanted to know the pros and cons for doing it.

Hey Mary,

I've had a lot of success using video feedback for my students in my photoshop class! i typically make a 3 or 4 minute video in which i rapidly highlight excellence or areas in need of work from a range of students. i used to provide written responses but they dont do the medium justice and then feedback is limited to that one individual student. we'll watch the video together as a class at the beginning of the lesson and they are then ready to jump in with a greater understanding for my expectations for the project.

i've uploaded some of these videos here: https://www.youtube.com/user/mrdrozdaup/search?query=feedback

That sounds like a great idea. I would love to see some of the suggestions that you are given. I am just starting to integrate technology into my elementary classroom but I think students would really repsond well to video feedback.

I think using a simple mobile device camera (such as iPhone or iPad), or even a webcam should do the job well. But one thing you may have to bear in mind is the size of the video. Blackboard may not welcome a video with a huge size and watching it is a pain.

I would suggest post the video (if this is for the whole class) to YouTube channel. Make it unlisted and embed the link in Blackboard using HTML code. This will allow the students to watch your feedback effortlessly.

Just this quarter I was going to start using video clips for feedback to design student and would love to hear the best way to get started. Northwestern uses Canvas which has a video tool. but I'm not sure it thats the best way to do it.
