Abstract

VideoClipQuests – in short: VCQs – are a teaching-learning-approach focussed on the learner's self-activity while information is collected by searching the Internet, similar to the well-established concept of WebQuests. VCQs can be one element to sensibly integrate the possibilities and advantages of the virtual world into teaching. Some of the advantages of VCQs are that they allow the teacher great latitude, they can be created very easily, they are compatible with a multitude of learning platforms, and they can be used both in e-learning and traditional lectures. Moreover, they appear to inherently motivate the learners and thus become highly accepted. In this paper we present the concept of a VCQ as well as first evaluation results of their influence to learning.
