Abstract. We briefly introduce the online learning environment INFACT, and then
we describe its textual feedback system. The system automatically provides written
comments to students as they work through scripted activities related to image
processing. The commenting takes place in the context of an online discussion
group, to which students are posting answers to questions associated with the
activities. Then we describe our experience using the system with a class of
university freshmen and sophomores.
1. Introduction
Timely feedback has been found in the past to improve learning [1]. However, it can be a
challenge to provide such feedback in large classes or online environments where the ratio of users
to teachers and administrators is high. We report here on an experimental system that provides
automated feedback to students as they work on activities involving elementary image processing
