Course Description

Videos can be a great source of authentic input in the language classroom. We love them! 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 technical skills, you can transform any video into an interactive exercise, which your students can work through from any device.

Please note that you will need an internet connection to access the material in this course. Because it contains embedded content, it cannot be completed offline.
