This paper deals with silence in video-based discourse, which includes pauses and delays. The data of the study is provided by international video conferences in which six in-service teachers and six pre-service teachers from three countries (Italy, the Netherlands, Hungary) together with a moderator and an assistent discuss sequences of their lessons. These discussions are part of a teacher training progrmme as conceived and implemented in the Erasmus+ project LEELU (www.leelu.eu). The focus of the present study is to analyse through a multimodal approach how the above-mentioned moments of silence co-constitute the video-based interaction, and how the discourse is built up with the other modalities (gestures, mime, gaze, body position and body movment). The results ought to contribute to the understanding of video-based communication in German and encourage a more conscious use of it.
