Abstract: In recent years scholars have devoted significant resources to research how the learning process can be improved. Developments in information and communication technologies have also enabled the learning experience to expand beyond traditional settings into an online environment, allowing for education to take place anywhere, anytime. This has led to programmes that are adapted to the needs and possibilities of each learner, increasing the competency of students across disciplines, as well as ensuring an environment for lifelong learning. The present study assesses the implementation of videocast as a creative tool to promote technology-enhanced experiential learning. It demonstrates that videocast improves learners' awareness of their strengths and weaknesses, thereby leading to increased self-regulated learning.

Keywords: student-centred teaching; motivation; self-learning; technology-enhanced learning; learning innovation; experiential learning; information and communications technology; ICT; information technology; videocasting; electronic learning; e-learning.
