WIP: Using Video Critiques to Provide Technical Critique of Student Capstone ProjectsAbstract: As part of ABET accreditation, students in engineering programs are required to complete acapstone project. One challenge that programs face is providing appropriate technical and professionalfeedback to students on their projects. Students may be working in an application domain in which thefaculty member has limited knowledge, or may be using newer technologies that the faculty memberhas not used before. To overcome these problems, it is often advantageous for the team to partnerwith an industrial mentor. The industrial mentor can provide technical assistance to the project as wellas provide impartial and unbiased feedback on the status of the project. However, this is not alwaysfeasible, as not all campuses are not located in urban areas, and stakeholders may not be local.This work in progress article describes the first part of a two part project to overcome some of theseproblems. In this project, capstone teams work directly with an alumni mentor on the project in anasynchronous format using videos and screen captures. As the students complete significantmilestones, deliverables are critiqued by an alumnus of the institution impartial to the project. Studentsreceive a short video with both written and verbal feedback on the deliverable, which can then beincorporated into future projects. This article describes the concept as well as provides a preliminaryassessment of the technique.
