It's A Bit Like Star Trek': The Effectiveness of Video Conferencing

This paper presents an evaluation of the effectiveness of video conferencing as a teaching and learning medium within the area of early childhood studies. The methodology consists of questionnaires administered to the early years' tutors who taught on the course and to students in both Belfast and Armagh (remote site). Findings indicate that students at the remote site have developed learning strategies and skills for dealing with the video-conference lecture. Tutors have had to adopt a formal style of teaching and this has had an effect on how lectures are presented. Furthermore, it is recognized by tutors and students that a tutor needs to be present at the remote site in order to facilitate discussion and deal with questions and problems.

Case studies

The case studies show different ways that filmmaking was integrated into the academic context.

Table of contents: 

Genesis and Genre - Since film was a core part of the module, students spent a considerable part of their classroom time studying films and learning about filmmaking. They worked in groups to produce short dramatised sections of novels and plays by Galdós.

Understanding Law II - Students were asked to make a group-based presentation in an electronic format of their choice - video, podcast, screencast or a combination. Students had a two-hour workshop on shooting and editing, then worked independently.

Architecture - Post-graduate architecture students were offered the opportunity to use filmmaking as part of a large final project. They worked with a Norwegian filmmaker and had professional help in the form of 'master-classes' from Sheffield based filmmakers, then went on to make their own films.

Filming Shakespeare - Students were encouraged to creatively interpret a section of a Shakespeare play. Working in groups they storyboarded, directed and edited, with the support of a film crew.
