Abstract

With the rapid development of the Internet in the mid 1990s, information technology has presented a new arena for learni ng and teaching . Recently, the production of videos and sharing them in the Internet has changed the mode of communication exchanges. The change is attributed to the low budget of video production and convenience of using Internet to distribute. However, most learning and teaching resources are still in the traditional text format. Similarly, most learners are required to complete their assignments in plain text. In light of this recent trend of express ideas using videos, it is proposed to complement traditional paper format assignment submission to including multiple formats such as pictures, videos and other digital formats. Furthermore, it is expected that the videos will be shared between the two classes so that they can learn from each other and extend learning outside classroom. Participants are required to record part of their processes when they are completing their assignments in digital formats and post it in the internet for sharing ideas and/or seeking comments for improvement. They are also required to express the gist of their assignments in video format so that they can convene their ideas creatively and lively. Apart from being the producer of non-text assignments, they are expected to give comments to the production of learners of the same and different modules. It is hope that the proposed mode of expressing ideas can develop participants' generic skills, in particular, cooperation, communication, creativity and information technology.
