Abstract

This paper describes the implementation of an online video resource for both postgraduate and undergraduate students with the aim to improve the learning of presentation skills. As part of the final year project in this last academic year, presentations were recorded at the start of the second semester. These were then made available to the students during week eight of the semester over the web via student specific portal pages. The student's marks and feedback from the lecture assessors on the presentations were also made available. The students were also recorded during their final presentations at the end of the semester. The changes in student grades were examined and compared to those over the previous six years when such feedback was not available. The resource was also designed to aid lecturers to view presentations they may have missed and enter marks for their allocated students.
