Using the Digital Storytelling App and Software Moxtra to Extend Student Presentations beyond the Classroom
Knight, Tim, Paper presented at the EUROCALL 2018 Conference (26th, Jyväskylä, Finland, 2018)
This paper explains how the mobile app and computer software Moxtra has augmented presentation and oral communication classes at the university level. Even the free version of Moxtra allows students to compile a digital portfolio of presentation and storytelling work, involving voice and visuals, to which both the teacher and fellow students have access. In a Mobile Assisted Language Learning (MALL) set up in particular, the app provides a workspace of language exploration where students can encounter each other beyond the classroom, and actively participate in the benefits of multimedia learning (Mayer, 2009). Feedback can be given after a presentation, and also beforehand during vital preparation time. The app encourages students to practice their presentations and helps the teacher when it comes to the assessment of students' work.
