The best and easiest way to give feedback to a learner on his or her work is to sit down together, review the work and give the feedback. The problem is matching learners and teacher time.

A workaround to this is using recorded feedback. A personal example of this is when I review the PowerPoint presentations residents send me before presenting at meetings. As I go through the slides I record the screen using Screecast-o-matic ( and make my comments.
