Online Video-Based Interaction: A Learning Arrangement for English Language Learning


  • Noureddine Mouhadjer Tlemcen University, Algeria


Nowadays, a great deal of research has been produced on the effects of an on-line environment on the language teaching and language learning process, where Internet has been quickly and eagerly taken up by educators as both a tool and a medium for foreign language education. The type of teaching delivered in such classrooms is referred to as network-based language teaching (NBLT), and the technologies most commonly used as either non-synchronous communication tools (such as e-mails), or synchronous tools (such as web-based videoconferencing, and chats). For that reason, this article takes a collaboration between Tlemcen University from Algeria and East Carolina University from North Carolina in USA as a case study to discuss the pedagogical implications of video-based communication, such as videoconferencing which distinguishes itself greatly from the other technologies, on foreign language learning.
