FeedbackFruits Comprehension


Comprehension is a social annotation tool that helps students to better process various types of study material such as videos, audio, images or documents. Students are primed on predetermined topics specified by teachers. Students select and annotate parts of the material where the predefined topics are discussed. This helps students to grasp the structure of the material and improves students’ comprehension skills.

Optionally, annotations of peers can be set as visible for collaborative learning purposes.


Step 1: Make sure that FeedbackFruits is enabled in your Nestor Course. For this go to Customisation - Tool Availability and select the FeedbackFruits option of your choice (when available in Nestor). 

Step 2: In the Nestor content area go to Build Content and select Feedback Fruits Comprehension. Give it a title and hit enter. This will create a link which will take you or your students to the online FBF environment. Once the link is created click on it to enter the FeedbackFruits Comprehension Tool.

Step 3: Once you are in the online environment you will have the option to either watch an instruction video or “get started”. If you are new to FBF then it might be good to watch the video. Once you are ready click get started.

Step 4: From here on the steps are fairly straight forward, you can see a pink line with 3 steps:

  1. Instructions: give the assignment a description. Here you can give some overall instructions for the assignment.

  2. Comprehension: Here you can add topics to prime your students. Students will have to annotate while reading and then connect their notes to the given topics

  3. Grading: This module is also optional. Here you can configure which facets of the activity should be weighed in the students grade.

For more detailed information you can also see the FeedbackFruits Help Center or watch the video listed below:
