Patrick J O’Malley

Abstract


In many large research intensive universities in the UK the ability to provide a personalised university learning experience for their students is providing a serious challenge. Based on the National Student Survey (NSS) data, the absence of focused personalised feedback is often a concern of students. Here we describe how we use the combination of modern technologies encompassing a Tablet PC and screencasting to provide a personalised feedback to our students on submitted coursework and tutorial example classes. The fundamentals and practicalities of this approach, in particular with regard to the physical sciences, are described and data from student attitudinal and informational surveys are presented.
