  • This Effective Feedback Animated Toolkit from the JISC Leeds Building Capacity charts a 'learning journey' illustrating how academics and support staff have drawn on JISC projects in the use of technologies to enhance feedback for students. The team comprised: Dragos Ciobanu (SDDU Academic Staff Development Officer), Misung An (Post-Graduate Design Student, PVAC), Vanessa Walker (Programme Manager MSc Design, PVAC) and myself (LBC Project Officer). This staff/student collaboration was initiated through a Leeds For Life work opportunity; to co-create a learning object. The link shows two key features:
    1. A YouTube video of the 'learning journey' - using a video-scribed animation technique
    2. Supporting text - an informal step-by-step 'how-to-guide' to create a video-scribed animation
