A teacher giving personalised feedback to a child.

How do you give feedback on a learner’s blog posts and online portfolios, or dialogues that they’ve created in online games or comics, or videos of their pronunciation practice? Screen capture software allows you to highlight or add symbols and text to an image of what’s on your screen, or to record your spoken feedback while you correct a text or play and pause a video.
