    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: One of the benefits of a screencast program in a language writing class is that it allows the instructor to provide feedback emphasizing the communicative purpose of the task. To overcome learners’ focus on the linguistic and local elements of an essay, the instructor first provided comments on content, structure, and organization to emphasize that these are fundamental aspects of effective written communication. Then, the instructor focused on local aspects, such as grammar, vocabulary, and editing. A benefit of this software program is that the instructor can use the cursor to hover over an error, which helps learners view the error in context. While this is probably the least social or interactive of the artifacts presented here, learners, who also practiced their listening comprehension, felt engaged in a dialogue with the instructor, which underscores that listening to an instructor’s voice makes feedback more personal and therefore more motivational than written comments.
