Abstract

Undergraduate students enrolled in three sections of a basic speech course over a period of three semesters were surveyed regarding their evaluations of the video streaming of their speeches on the Internet as a method of feedback. Streaming video refers to motion video with accompanying audio that is delivered live or asynchronously and is available at the click of a mouse on a website. Students reported the viewing of their streamed speeches on the Internet to be a convenient and effective medium for feedback an an experience in connected learning that allowed them to share their speech with friends and family. To research this topic, speeches were videotaped and posted to a protected Internet site. Students then had the opportunity to access the site, view their speech, prepare a list of speech goals based on their viewing, and later evaluate the experience by means of a questionnaire.
