What is this course about?
Video can be a great source of authentic input in the language classroom. But without associated tasks, video-watching is simply a passive experience for learners, and will not necessarily assist learners to achieve learning outcomes.
Listening tasks need to be designed, which guide learners to interact appropriately with the video material, based on their learning needs.
This course will show you how to embed your active listening tasks into your chosen video at the appropriate moments. With these technology skills, you can transform any video into an interactive exercise, which your students can work through from any device.
