Video in ELT: Moving from Passive to Active Part 1 – Introduction (Social Asynchronous Webinar)

Hello and welcome to the first Social Asynchronous Webinar (SAW)! For those who don’t know what that is, I would suggest you first watch the video below or visit my blog post on it.

This first SAW is on the use of video in the ELT classroom. This first section of the webinar introduces us to idea of knowledge creation and then talks about the tools that will be covered in the following sections. This first video is about 10 minutes long and that is about the length that I feel would be good for each subsequent section. You can find a schedule for the remainder of this SAW at the bottom of the page.

These webinars make use of videoANT to allow people to annotate and comment on videos. When you arrive at the site, it is going to ask for an email or permission to use Google+, Facebook, or Twitter to log in. Feel free to use a completely made up email address since you are not required to verify the address. The only thing is that you will need to remember the email address you used to log in at a later time.

SAW 1 Annotate

Here are the slides I used in the video. Most of the links are clickable and will take you to the tools that are going to be covered in future segments of this webinar.

Feel free to add your comments to the video, the slides, on Twitter, or on this post. If you would like to share a video, audio, or text file, you can email it to me using the address in the slides, or you can send me a link if you have it hosted somewhere.

Here is a schedule for this SAW:

  • July 10 – First section (Introduction)
  • July 14 – Second section (Creating, hosting, and sharing videos)
  • July 18 – Third section (Screencasting)
  • July 22 – Fourth section (Annotating and commenting on videos)
  • July 28 – Final section (Remixing videos)

Thank you for your time and I look forward to learning along with you!

  1. Hi Nathan, just to let you, and others, know, VideoAnt doesn’t seem to allow users to login for the first time with their Twitter account. I got a message saying something along the lines that Twitter doesn’t use e-mail authentication. Anyway, I was able to login using an old Google account (which I don’t use anymore) and then add my Twitter account. A little confusing at first, but it seems that once you’re signed up, you can change a few things.

    • Sorry to hear that, David. I hope it wasn’t too much trouble. Thanks for taking the time to let us all know. I will pass that along to the videoANT crew to ask if they are aware of it.
