Video tutorials: Camtasia in the ESL classroom

Abstract

The increasing quality and ever-growing presence of technology in and outside the classroom allows teachers to experiment with new forms of lesson delivery, from video production (Gromik, 2007), to blogging (Pinkman, 2005) and teacher produced podcasts (Diem, 2005). Recently however a new form of lesson delivery is becoming available. During the JALT CALL 2006 conference, Allard and Gromik presented a workshop about creating video tutorials using Camtasia. Following up on this workshop, this article describes a current research project that presents Camtasia-based video tutorials about software operation to English as Foreign Language (EFL) Japanese learners.
