The benefits of VEO in education
Within the education sector VEO has enabled universities, schools and collages with the tools to improve the teaching and learning outcomes for students and teachers alike.
Through powerful video tagging software, VEO lets learners take charge of their professional development – enabling the reviewing and sharing of best practice to improve practice over time.
In doing so, VEO is currently trusted and used by many universities, schools and colleges – providing formative feedback for students and tutors alike as well as giving senior management a handle on the business of teaching.
As a result of this, there are numerous benefits for students, lecturers and senior management staff – these include:
Student benefits: Using VEO’s unique tagging process, areas of excellence and aspects for development can be quickly and easily identified, increasing learning opportunities
Academic benefits: Gives lecturer’s an effective overview on student learning, allowing student-specific feedback to develop learning. Also puts the power in the lecturers’ hands to illustrate effective tutoring, coaching and teaching & learning strategies, identifying their own strengths and areas for development
Education management benefits: Develop efficient and effective approaches to observation linked improvement in learning outcomes, student satisfaction and employability
Role-play / Simulation training:
Student benefits: Peer and assessor feedback alongside opportunities for self-reflection, enable process and human factors to be reviewed and analysed quickly and effectively
Academic benefits: Enables staff support of student reflection and ownership of skill development – providing timely and objective feedback and assessment
Education management benefits: Enables focus on organisation-wide improvement of learning and teaching, quality feedback and opportunities for self / peers / student reflection
Peer Review & Coaching:

Case study – VEO in action
To this end, Teesside University paramedics piloted the use of VEO for formative student assessment and feedback. Students across several Universities in the UK and abroad are now taking charge of their progress in vital practical and soft skills as they prepare for diverse careers in clinical, business and educational fields.
