Online tools offer a number of possibilities for providing and gathering feedback. This may be feedback from an academic to an individual or a group of students, between peers, or an individual reflecting on their own work. Approaches include inline annotations or annotated files, comment banks, audio or video feedback, rubrics, quizzes with automated feedback, blogs, peer review, surveys, or the use of clickers in face-to-face sessions.

Practical help

There is a wide range of tools which can support feedback. The case studies and related tools and topics listed on this page are a good place to start, and our support page will give you an idea of which technologies the University makes available.


You may need to think about:

  • What are your aims or what needs to change?
  • How and where will the feedback be created?
  • How and where will students access the feedback?
  • What the role of the feedback is, and how students can be supported in making best use of it.
