Investigating Engagement and Learning Differences between Native and EFL students in Active Video Watching (2021)
Video-based learning (VBL) requires good listening and reading comprehension skills, which could be challenging for English as a foreign language (EFL) students. In this paper, we investigate the differences between EFL and Native English speakers in a VBL platform called AVW-Space, in order to identify potential interventions that would be helpful for EFL students. AVW-Space provides note-taking, peer-reviewing, visualisations and personalised nudges to support engagement in VBL. Although previous studies on AVW-Space showed these supports were effective for increasing engagement, we discovered significant differences in learning outcomes and engagement between EFL/Native students, which stem from different learning strategies, background knowledge and language barriers. This research contributes to using learning analytics to understand better the differences between EFL and Native students, and providing more specialised support for EFL students in VBL.
