Research: How Video Production Affects Student Engagement

TedX recently commissioned a study of nearly 1,000 videos, segmenting them out by by video type and production style, and discovered this among their other findings:

  1. Shorter videos are more engaging. Engagement drops after 6 minutes.
  2. Videos with a more personal feeling are more effective than high-fidelity studio recordings.
  3. Videos in which the instructor speaks quickly and with high enthusiasm are more engaging.
  4. Khan-style tablet drawings are more engaging than power point slides.

The Other Super Bowl: Commercials And The Power Of Student Voice

The Other Super Bowl: Commercials And The Power Of Student Voice | Education Matters - (tech and non-tech) | Scoop.it

As the week ended, many of our students were abuzz over the Super Bowl this Sunday, but not so much because of the game. It's the commercials. They love them, and we have fun deconstructing the multitude of advertisements each year on Monday after the game. It reinforces their media literacy skills and provides opportunities to broaden the discussion.
