In this study, we investigate the effects of raising the consciousness of learning objectives in learner-centered video-conferencing. The aim of this study is to evaluate whether consciousness of learning objectives leads to action based on that consciousness. We implemented a system to raise learners f consciousness of learning objectives in second language acquisition (SLA) by displaying the target expression during videoconferencing, to encourage learners to utter the expression. The effect of this system was evaluated compared with a video conference system without expression display from the viewpoints of consciousness and action. The results showed a significant difference between the system with expression display and the system without expression display in both consciousness and action. However, the result also revealed that attention to system design and instructional design will be needed for more frequent action in video-conferencing.
