June 5th, I will present some stuff concerning the use of Blackboard and Canvas Instructure for marking of open-ended questions using Rubrics and other features. I think that the process that student assignments are submitted, marked, annotated with feedback, returned and archived, will be one of the major developments in the upcoming 5 years in relation to e-learning. Both in terms of software development, but also in view of policy development in HE. Students simply expect that institutions for HE have this process institution wide implemented with the same level of quality in terms of timing and quality of feedback over multiple courses and faculty – in particualr, because it is just possible !
To see the progress that VLE and ofther software developers have made to improve the process of submitting, grading and providing feedback to written work, check out the short list below.
