Multimedia as a Means to Enhance Feedback
Computer Assisted Language Learning, v17 n3-4 p377-402 Jul 2004
Interactive feedback, the most common feedback method for oral performance, cannot be used in activities that do not allow for instructor-student interaction, such as speeches and presentations, where feedback should occur after the performance. The conventional ways of providing post-performance or delayed feedback, however, are neither efficient nor effective due to a variety of problems, for example, the time lag from performance to performance review by the instructor and the student. Recognizing that a multimedia tool could significantly enhance delayed feedback, the Technical Japanese Program at the University of Washington developed a software tool to provide such feedback. This paper first identifies the requirements for an effective delayed feedback tool, and then introduces this software tool and discusses the theoretical basis for its development to demonstrate the potential of multimedia technology for use in delayed feedback.
