Mobile Video App for English Teaching/Learning: Testing a Prototype

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionScientificpeer-review


The popularity of Mobile Assisted Language Learning, promoted by the well-established advantages of audiovisual content consumption habits for autonomous learning, has increased during the last decade. At the same time, there is regular discussion on the ability of Online Collaborative Plat-forms (OCP) to respond to the educational wishes of teachers and learners, and simultaneously increase their audiovisual consumption habits when these are aimed at improving their foreign language teaching and learning proficiency. Bearing this in mind, this chapter focuses on a part of quantitative data of a Research-Development doctoral project, where a prototype of an OCP was developed and tested with teachers of English as Foreign Language and learners of English for Specific Purposes. The pre-trial data and the post-trial data provide data that led to a conceptual validation of the pro-posed OCP, and, the main focus of the paper, pinpoint some behavioral shifts that led to the conclusion that this OCP could have the potential to change AVC’s viewing, sharing and cataloguing habits. This would theoretically mean an increase in consumption of videos to support teaching and learning of English, in autonomous scenarios.
