New type of feedback launching on Thursday

Filed under: Uncategorized — Alex ONeill @ 11:20 am

On Thursday 22nd May (this week) we will be launching a new way to give feedback to students in the Feedback Assistant.

Lecturers will have the ability to open student submissions directly within their web browser and make notes on them just as they would in Word or PDF. They then mark as complete and move onto the next document – no uploading or downloading of documents or zipping up files!

Options include adding highlights, making side notes and typing text or making scribbles directly onto the page. Here’s a little sneak preview:

If you want to try it out, sign up to the Feedback Assistant here. You will then see a link to it in the left hand navigation whenever you login to FASer.

If you have any questions feel free to contact the Learning Technology Team (, ext. 3659).
