Russell Stannard is a principal teaching fellow at the University of Warwick. He works in the Centre for Applied Linguistics. Russell is a specialist in the use of media and technology in ELT and he has won several big awards for his website www.teachertrainingvideos.com.

Russell's work in using screen capture has caused considerable interest including several national press articles, an appearance on the news on French TV and a mention in a UK government report in 2009. The story started back in June 2006 when Russell wrote about the use of screen capture software as a way of providing feedback to students. This was followed by an article in the IATEFL SIG in November 2006 and then a 2000 word article in the Times Higher, which gave the idea a massive profile and led to international coverage of his work.
