Observation of "YouTube" Language Learning Videos ("YouTube" LLVS)
Alhamami, Munassir
Teaching English with Technology, v13 n3 p3-17 2013
This paper navigates into the "YouTube" website as one of the most usable online tools to learn languages these days. The paper focuses on two issues in creating "YouTube" language learning videos: pedagogy and technology. After observing the existing "YouTube" LLVs, the study presents a novel rubric that is directed towards a pedagogically sound basis for language learning in the "YouTube" learning environment. The purposes of the rubric are. (A): selecting and evaluating the appropriate "YouTube" language videos for the target audience. (B): creating effective language learning "YouTube" videos that are based on the existing language learning theories. The findings present a rubric that contains 44 questions that have been classified in five main categories: video characteristic, attractiveness, clarity, reaction and content. In each category, there are several questions discussing issues under each category. These questions are driven and modified from the language materials evaluation and design research and language classroom observations research.
