VOA Special English - karaoke-style videos where each word is highlighted in turn as the speaker reads.  This one is an agricultural report.

 

While these videos certainly support autonomous language practice, some imagination is required to make them effective for learning.  I suppose minimally a teacher would need to make sure the text was comprehensible, but I'm not sure what a good task or learning activity would look like either.
