Abstract This article addresses a pervasive need in the area of videoconference-supported distance language learning: task design. On the basis of Chapelle's (2001) criteria for CALL task appropriateness, this article proposes a set of criteria for evaluating videoconferencing-based tasks which examine such aspects of a task as practicality, language-learning potential, learner fit, authenticity, and positive impact. These criteria were then tested with language learners who completed various tasks using a videoconferencing tool called NetMeeting. Upon examination of the findings in regard to each of these criteria, issues in videoconferencing task design and performance are recommended for further study.
