|Tag(s)||EMCA, Following Instructions, Instructional videos, Coordinating temporalities|
Using video recordings as data to study how dyads follow instructional videos to achieve practical tasks, this article focuses on how partici- pants coordinate the temporality of the video with that of their task by pausing the video. We examine three types of pausing, each display- ing participants’ online understanding of the instructions and differ- ent articulations between demonstrations and practical task: pausing to raise a correspondence problem, to keep up with the video, and to turn to action. From this exemplar case, we discuss how ordinary people experience and make time with interactive media.
