    Abstract:
    Ongoing digitization provides new opportunities for teaching and engaging students both inside and outside the class room. This article reports on three approaches to using new media to facilitate undergraduate teaching of Old English at Leiden University, the Netherlands. First, the use of video clips to explain basic features of Old English grammar and morphology is discussed. Next, we report on how the incorporation of student-created material (vlogs on the Norman Conquest and ‘homemade’ Old English proverbs) led to a better understanding of the course content. Finally, an analysis of a Facebook group for Old English students, which has run for a duration of over four years, is shown along with the best practices that have been gleaned from it.
