Constructive and relevant feedback can lead to great results. Due to the online element of digital learning, the number of face-to-face interactions and thus also the feedback during these moments are very limited. Therefore, the digital feedback, you provide at regular intervals, is very valuable for your students: it makes the learning experience more personal. Keep in mind the unique character of online communication: there are a couple of crucial differences with face-to-face communication that can influence the way you work.
Bear in mind the following keywords when you want to give constructive feedback:
(E.g. “I had expected more from you”, “Is that everything?”, “If you continue like this, I do not expect you will pass the final test”, “Someone with your skills should be able to perform better”.)
