Integration von Erklärvideos in einen Englisch-Selbstlernkurs
Popular trends like the Khan Academy or self-learning through MOOCs are some of the latest tendencies in E-learning. The main focus lies on competencies of autonomous learning and explanations via video or flipped classrooms. This article examines explainer videos as a new medium for autonomous English-learning on the basis of the English self-learning programme “FLIP (Flexible Language-Learning Individualised Programme) English” at the Language Centre of University of Munich (LMU). First studies show tendencies, whether this new form of self-made instruction leads to a surplus for English teaching. Also, target-oriented tasks are analysed upon their tendencies to trigger an individual development of competencies among university students.
“I’d been, frankly, frustrated at how little creative work was being done to use the web as a core component of instruction […] And when I saw this, I thought--yes, he’s got it”. -- Bill Gates in einem Interview im Time Magazine über die Khan Academy (Webley 2012)
