This case study written by Dr. Aparajita Dey-Plissonneau & Prof. Alan Smeaton shows how language students use the recordings of their virtual exchanges with native speakers of their target language using Zoom video conferencing for online language learning. The recordings are used to generate graphic visualisations that allow students to analyse their participation rates and conversation flow, as well as playback the videos to engage in self- and peer-review with the aim to reflect on their linguistic competencies, intercultural understanding, any challenges encountered and how they could be overcome.
