The Need:

As outlined by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills and Ofqual (UK Exam Regulator), there is now a need in higher education for an assessment solution that is immediately more efficient, transparent and consistent and which can also handle multimedia format such as video and audio.

The Solution:

The Red Ink project is an innovative online software solution, funded as part of an Enterprise Ireland Commercialisation Programme, designed to support the grading, marking and provision of feedback with regard to a range of student work (essays/reports, presentations, projects etc) in a range of multimedia formats (e.g. text, audio, video etc).

RedInk can be broadly described as an assessment productivity tool, one based on an underlying concept of “rubrics”, i.e. descriptors associated with different standards of achievement under different key criteria. The system integrates with existing Learning Management Systems and other eLearning systems and is developed to take full advantage of the affordances of multi-touch devices such as the iPad.
