Abstract: One of the challenges of large-scale blended-learning courses is to provide individual feedback to the students. This paper describes an approach where a large-scale online course is combined with regular face-to-face interactions to improve the quality of individual feedback. The aim is to provide each student in large cohorts with personalized high-quality feedback to improve their learning success. In this paper, three aspects are highlighted namely, the challenges of feedback at large cohorts, the benefits, and how we have successfully organized this in our large-scale course.
