Give Video Feedback in the Otus LMS

Otus is a learning management system that I've watched evolve from a relatively simple iPad app into a full-fledged LMS that can be used on any device. When I first wrote about Otus in 2014 I wrote, "the possibilities for teachers using Otus seem limitless." This morning, thanks to an Otus Facebook post, I learned about another way to use Otus.

You can add video feedback to your students through the Otus learning management system. It's easy to do from any computer that has a webcam. In the following video I demonstrate how to add video feedback to your students' portfolios in the Otus LMS.


Applications for Education
Video feedback can feel a lot more personal to a student than just reading some comments that you have written in a document. While it might not be as efficient as using canned comments, giving video feedback on big projects can make students feel better about the feedback they're getting. Video feedback in Otus could also be used to just give students some encouragement.

How to Include Video Feedback in Google Forms

Google Forms is a great platform for creating all kinds of simple quiz and review activities. One of the features of Google Forms that is often overlooked is the "go to section based on answer" setting. When you use that setting correctly you can send students to watch a review video when they answer a question incorrectly in your Form. In the five minute video embedded below I demonstrate how to create a Google Form that prompts students to watch review videos when they answer questions incorrectly.


Another method for prompting students to watch a video when they answer incorrectly is to put a video link in the feedback portion of a graded Google Forms quiz. The downside to that method is that students have to wait until they have completed the entire quiz before they can get the links to the videos. A video tutorial on that process is embedded below.
