Abstract: Audiovisual resources have been an important element in education to expose students to content, as well as to raise their cultural and linguistic awareness of the target language. However, such resources have constantly maintained students in the consumer seat. Whether students completed a worksheet or filled in a software comprehension activity, the task and the computer kept authentic communicative activities in the background. Such constraining learning environments are slowly changing, because as Warschauer (2005) notes, media literacy is empowering learners to become active agents in the construction of authentic artifacts which can become online resources. As Grossman states in the quote above, video production and Web 2.0 technology is giving a voice to individuals and these individuals are our students.
