Workshop: Video Commenting for Student Engagement: “Bullet Screen” / Danmu Tool for Virtual and In-class Learning

Abstract: This workshop introduces an innovative video commenting online tool for virtual as well as in-class learning using the function of “bullet screen”. Bullet screen, or danmu, is a popular function in Asian video sharing websites where users can submit, view, and add textual commentaries flying in and out of screen like bullets while watching the videos online. Collaborating with the Information Technology Services Centre (ITSC) at CUHK, the workshop shows how the Danmu tool is designed to optimize collaborative online learning with video by encouraging interactions among students and between students and teacher.

Through the sharing of class learning and live demonstration of the Danmu tool developed by ITSC, this workshop shows how bullet screen tool enables development of professional and general skills in video analysis. Watching and commenting at each student’s pace provides opportunities for conducting detailed textual analysis on both the content and the aesthetic of the video.

Further, the bullet screen learning tool is designed to optimize collaborative online learning with video. Typically, the flipped classroom approach offers an individualized learning experience and lacks user interaction. With the bullet screen learning tool, peer learning can be realized through student interactions on the bullet screen. The students can view others’ comments, reflect upon them, thereby creating a collaborative watching and learning experience. This project is funded by the Virtual Teaching and Learning grant and the workshop will also share the tips about applying for teaching grants.
