New Turnitin feature – Voice Comments

Online grading and markup for Turnitin Assignments in Blackboard just got better with the “Voice Comments” feature.

The ability for an instructor to leave a personal voice comment is a powerful tool for providing feedback to a student. With just a few clicks, instructors can quickly record a detailed message of up to 3 minutes in length and attach it to a paper. This new GradeMark feature is especially useful in disciplines with written assignments that are graded primarily on content vs. writing skills, such as science lab reports. Additionally, those who teach ESL students can more fully explain their feedback in more understandable terms.

Students hear the content of the message, and, more importantly, the context of the feedback and tone of the instructor’s voice.
