UM students successfully use new video feedback feature

8 May 2019

Recently the Maastricht University video platform Mediasite introduced ‘showcase’ for grouping uploaded videos for viewing. This is similar to so called channels used by popular open video platforms, such as YouTube and Vimeo.

What are the advantages of a showcase?

  • All videos are in one location
  • Submission and viewing dates can be set
  • The teacher determines who can watch what
  • Storage of videos assignments can comply with government regulations
  • A comment feature underneath videos facilitates time stamped tutor and peer feedback

 

FHML students providing feedback in the showcase

How well the showcases’ comment feature suits problem-based learning was demonstrated by the students of the FHML Bachelor Biomedical Sciences BBS3004 course. About 190 students were divided into 36 groups and asked to visualise their group research project in a skills clip. All skills clips were uploaded to Mediasite, organised into a showcase accessible to all course participants and project supervisors. In addition to formal tutor and peer feedback by means of a rubric, students were encouraged to view their peers’ clips and provide feedback in the Mediasite showcase comment section. The quality of the skills clips and the number of positive and constructive comments was overwhelming and impressed both course coordinators Tiffany Porta Siegel and Marlies de Ligt as well as library education support staff who facilitated this course.
