Bruce and Hogan (1998) argue that technologies are embedded in everyday discourse and activity which make them slip into the background of our lives. Regarding the presence of information technology in English language classrooms, remarkable changes occur in the expectations about the abilities students have to acquire in order to be successful EL users(Bruce&Hogan,1998).The integration of information technology into EFL classrooms has been always under investigation from educational technologists and language learning theorists' perspectives(Kuang-wu,2000).The question of motivational effect and the quest to truly discover the effect of videos as instructional materials seem to differ from one context to another, and thus done through many ways. This study aims to investigate the effect of video instruction on motivation and academic performance of advanced EFL learners, using the ARCS Model developed by Keller, and an unpaired T-test Analysis of pre-and post- tests. The experiment was done on a group of 36 Tunisian students majoring in English studies at a Tunisian university.
