In this paper, we report on the use of a web-based video CMC system in the teaching practicum course of our computer teacher education program. Thirty-seven students enrolled in the course were required to use the system to complete course related activities. The video enabled CMC system contains all of students’ micro teaching and field-teaching sessions. Re-viewing of self and other’s teaching and discussions are encouraged. Experienced high school teachers were asked to critique and to lead the discussions with the students in the CMC system. Survey results indicate that the web-based video CMC system is an effective tool for facilitating pre service teacher reflecting on their teaching practices.
