This article presents some key research outcomes of a project carried out during 2018 on student feedback through screen-capture tools, also known as Audiovisual Student Feedback (ASF). It also examines the educational potential of ASF from the perspective of the lecturer against the backdrop of the Marketisation of Higher Education, the crisis of Writing as a mode and recent conceptual debates in the field of assessment and feedback. It then proposes a new set of categories to enable the reader to have a comprehensive understanding of the affordances of ASF and discusses five case studies of lecturers who have trialled it. It concludes with some reflections on both problematic and promising aspects of ASF as well as advice to software developers, institutions and lecturers.
