Utilising Videos to Aid Students English Subject Knowledge Across the Disciplines

Research output: Other Conference ContributionsPresentation

Abstract

Technology has radically affected students’ attention span, especially when it comes to language learning. From our experience of developing various online interactive learning materials and systems, in order to ensure a captive audience, the online lessons have to be accessible, limited in length; and fresh and modern in their design and content. The type of materials they are interested in / what engages them may include a blend of video and a variety of question sets such as drag and drop, mix and match, multiple choice and short answer. Designed and conducted by language professionals and discipline instructors to introduce key terminology and concepts at the beginning of each unit throughout the course that are discipline specific. These videos, three to five minutes long, will be available online via video channel, Moodle, EDX, etc. students may access and re-visit them whenever and wherever they are, as many times as they need to in order to grasp the lesson content.
