Although many studies reported that student-created video task could promote learners’ active learning and engagement, the investigation on how the students worked and created the videos is still scarce. The process of video creation in a micro-reality context of English language learning involves social practice and cognition (a socio-cognitive process) of the students. The student-created video is an output-based learning activity that reflects a meaning-making process upon the completion of the project. This paper sheds light on how the students worked on the project through such stages as preparing the materials, setting the scene, selecting the video recording tool and editing the video before the submission. Encapsulated from the videos and semi-structured interviews from 41 Polytechnic students in Indonesia, the approaches that students employed during the process of video creation were explored to arrive at a meaning-making process of learning. As a result, the activity enabled the student active learning, vocabulary building, autonomous learning and self-confidence as well as the student’s technological skill. In addition to that, the challenges encountered by the students during the video-making process will also be presented.
