CVLs or Collaborative Video Logs are a collaborative learning model designed to engage groups of students around a topic that promotes ownership, reflection, academic and social outcomes.
A CVL consists of a series of video created by a small group of student addressing a common theme or topic. Students select or are assigned a day of the week where they are responsible for posting a video. Students develop questions which are responded to in turn by other students in turn. For example, if it is the student assigned to Mondays turn to ask a question, he or she would post a video asking their question and answering from their perspective. Following that other students would answer the same question in rotation on their assigned day, with the last student in the group posing a new question for the group to answer. Students throughout the week are responsible for watching and commenting on their peers videos. At the end of the project student reflect, both individual and as a group, on the topic and what they have learned.
