Sure, you can mark up a student’s submitted paper with pen or using the comment function in Word, comment on their assignment in Inquire (Moodle), or provide your critique through email, but video feedback (veedback) is another great method to help students improve their work while applying a more personal touch.
Video feedback, or veedback, can be easily done using Jing.
