In 2014, teachers from LSE’s Language Centre started exploring the use of technology to mark and provide feedback on students’ written work. After trying out three tools (Moodle, iPads and annotation apps, Snagit) with her colleague Catherine (see blog post), Lourdes Hernandez-Martin decided to focus on the use of iPads and worked on the project with Mercedes Coca.

Key findings from the project can be found in the updated blog post “Marking and Giving Feedback with iPads”

Below are the slides of Lourdes and Mercedes’ presentation at LTI’s Learning Technology and Innovation Ideas Exchange last May. It includes reflections and feedback from both teachers and students who took part in the project.


What next?

The Language Centre is now exploring the use of the Turnitin app for e-marking with the help of LTI. More information will be posted as the project progresses. More information on Turnitin and its integration to Moodle.
