Self-made videos: Learning by having fun

Research output: Other contributionOther contributions


Instead of searching and using already-existing videos online, I make and play self-made educational videos to serve my courses’ learning objectives. While I am the chief coordinator, students play a key role in the processes of video making and reception: (1) they act and participate in shooting; (2) they create bilingual subtitles; (3) they upload videos onto YouTube and write blurbs; (4) they help promote videos; (5) they watch and participate in Q&A sessions of these videos. These videos are highly entertaining and eye-catching, which are results of learning from currently popular YouTubers’ styles. Copyright © 2021 Technology-Enhanced Language Learning and Teaching.
