Video for all: using video to enhance language teaching
Online session date: 15 October 2014 at 11:30
Jisc Digital Media are pleased to announce our upcoming hour-long webinar “Video for all: using video to enhance teaching and learning” presented by Teresa McKinnon, Principal Teaching Fellow, The Language Centre, University of Warwick.
A review of use by language tutors of the Languages@Warwick platform (a Moodlerooms Joule virtual learning environment) showed that video resources were regularly used to support learners. Sometimes these were YouTube embeds, sometimes international digital media captured through our satellite system, sometimes tutor-created webinar recordings. As the site is designed to facilitate interaction and student creation, it was apparent that the centre needed a video streaming solution which would:
- enable more creative use of video
- ensure a range of repurposing opportunities
- facilitate the dissemination of the video resources they had available.
Knowing that media management and delivery is complex and given that the centre have limited resources, they implemented the integration of a Kaltura Media Console in 2012. The success of this system and the additional possibilities it offered the centre to contribute to a European project, 'Video for all' has led to further extension of the system this year using the Kaltura Media Space to provide a collaborative space and the sharing of Open Access Resources for language teachers and learners across all sectors. A case study about the Language Centres use of video is available on the Jisc Digital Media site.
This webinar offers an opportunity to find out more about the details of this development and the impact that it has had on our teaching delivery.
