Reflection on using MyFeedBack mobile tool to enhance students’ engagement in the learning process: think big-do different

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

MyFeedBack is a prototype interactive mobile web 2.0 learning platform for assessment and feedback. The uniqueness of this application lies in the interactivity of the mobile application that enables several learning / teaching activities under one platform. It incorporates a discussion board (Ask My Peers), a feedback system (MyGrades), a multiple choice quiz engine (MyQuizzes and MyPeerQuizzes), a peer feedback system (MyPeerPresentation) and a polling system (MyVoice). With these features, students can participate in peer feedback activities, access their feedback, leave comments on their summative/formative feedback, participate in class discussions, take formative assessment in form of quizzes and create quizzes for their peers. One or a combination of features can be used to suit different teaching and learning activities.

The aim of this research is to provide an overview of how MyFeedBack has helped monitoring students’ behaviour with their assignment results and subsequently providing some answers to the following questions: ‘Do they collect it?’, ‘Do they read it?’, ‘Will they take it on board?’ and ‘How do they feel about it?’
