The instructors I work with are looking for options beyond text for learners to demonstrate knowledge and skills.
Audio assessment is one of the alternatives we’re exploring and soon we’ll be creating assignments for learners to submit links to recorded audio. We’ll be putting in the caveat that learners are NOT allowed to read from a script. Obviously some might – and if it’s mission critical they don’t, we’ll look at video assessment.
Here is a tutorial I’ve created for our learners to support them – some of them still pretty new to all that is internet. Your feedback on its suitability is, as always, greatly appreciated.
