There’s a discussion happening on the listserv tech-rhet right now about audio comments on student essays. One handy link posted by Jim Kalmbach was to a 2002 Kairos essay by Jack Wilson called “Perception is All: Using Audio Files To Reach Across the Divide.” I’ve only had a chance to skim it at this point, but basically, it’s about Wilson’s use of audio comments, which he creates (created? I assume he still does this) digitally.
As I posted to tech-rhet, this sounds kind of interesting, and maybe I’ll experiment with it next semester. On the other hand, it also sounds like it might be more work than it’s worth, too. Hmmmm…..
