Abstract

Feedback is an important part of learning and, as such is vital for students to develop and progress throughout their academic life. Programming can be an abstract concept that students find challenging to comprehend therefore good feedback is important to their progress and their motivation to continue programming. This paper will discuss the process of enhancing coursework feedback for Game Programming students through the use of screencasts. The hypothesis being that game programming by its nature is audio-visual thus, providing feedback using an audio-visual medium should increase the student's perception of their feedback such that it is perceived to be clearer, easier to comprehend and personalised.
