    Abstract

    This paper overviews and analyses a project to replace the oral presentation element of a political theory
    module with a video presentation created by students. Its aim is not to provide a practical guide for the
    educator but to discuss how video presentations address a number of concerns that students raise about oral
    presentations. In particular, this paper will focus on the role that bravery has on a student’s journey in
    education and how video presentations can help by moving the assessment of oral communication from a
    public to a private act. It will also look at how creating video presentations might stimulate digital literacy and
    suggest that it is the educator’s rather than the student’s literacy that is challenged by this process.
