With more courses being offered in different formats, multiple ways to communicate with students are being used to provide feedback to students. While traditional methods work with traditional settings, digital tools are more often used in online and blended courses. Especially useful are interactive communication tools used for chatting and video conferencing. While these communication tools bring immediacy to student-teacher communicating, tools that offer an archived record are beneficial for both students and teachers since archived records can be referenced as needed throughout the semester. Instructional tools used for digital feedback will be presented with emphasis placed on communication tools that allow interaction. Examples from programs such as Acrobat, Author Stream, and Voice Thread that students especially liked will be reviewed. Focus will center on interactivity and media enhanced web friendly tools.
