Learners hone and develop skills by observing best practices and identifying their own strengths and weaknesses in comparison to a best practice (Bandura, 1977). An excellent model response includes not only a demonstration, but also a detailed explanation of why the expert did certain things in the demonstration. You can upload or record a video or audio file as a model response. Practice includes the model response after the prompt & response stage and the peer assessment stage by design. If Learners practice a skill on their own and critique others before viewing or listening to a model response, then they are primed to fully engage with the expert content. Learners' interest and ability to absorb the Expert's demonstration is heightened by stages one and two of a Practice exercise.
As a content module creator, you can upload a VTT caption file for a model response video. Once uploaded, the caption file can display a transcript of the video's dialogue in the learner's video player. If you need help creating a VTT caption file, you can use a captioning site such as Amara to create captions for your video files.
