Video can be a powerful instructional tool in a wide variety of disciplines when utilized to capture the moments of learning and teaching, and thoughtfully combined with instructor feedback and student self-reflection. Using mobile devices, adding comments to video clips as reflection and feedback can make the annotations synced to the moment, identify patterns of behavior, and enhance analysis with snippets that can easily elude in a class or learning scenario. Video-based coaching platforms such as Sibme (sibme.com) enable embedded annotations while reviewing video clips, as well as, provide protected collaboration space for analyzing these annotations.

As an applied research project (Goldman, Derry, Pea, & Barron, 2014;Jones, 2016O’Neil, 2015), this sandbox will explore the teaching and learning applications of the video-based coaching tool, Sibme. In addition to Sibme, similar tools will be shared and compared. Accepted participants will discover the possibilities of video-based coaching tools and receive a year-long subscription to Sibme.


At the completion of this sandbox, the participants are anticipated to be able to

  • Develop skills of using video annotation tools
  • Identify formative assessment options of video annotation tools
  • Evaluate feedback functions with video analysis comments
  • Design a project for fall 2019 class using the video reflection and feedback tool
  • Establish a network of faculty sharing a common interest in using video reflection and feedback as a teaching and assessment platform
