This study aims to explore whether teachers on a postgraduate, distance learning programme can be supported by video technology. The research looks at assessment and feedback around the students’ lesson observations, an aspect of practice undertaken across a wide range of courses within higher education (HE).

Semi-structured interviews were used with students and tutors for data collection and thematic analysis for analysis. Themes from the analysis include “Learning and Teaching from a Distance, Observation Feedback Electronically, Technology Anxiety, Observation Anxiety and Critical Reflection”.

The study outlines the strengths and weaknesses of using video software, as opposed to face-to-face observation of practice, but highlights key pedagogical benefits that come with the use of electronic submitted video observations.
