Kick-start learning by giving students a lecture ‘trailer’

Kick-start learning by giving students a lecture ‘trailer’ | eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Nicholas Morton is road-testing some unusual ways to get, and keep, students’ attention

 

My latest idea is to create a series of one-minute “lecture trailers” – these rapidly show the students some of the places to be discussed and ask challenging questions. So, for a lecture on the First Crusade, I might show them some of the key battle sites and ask – in the video – “How did the First Crusade change relations between Western Europe and the Islamic world?” or “How did the Crusaders succeed in crossing thousands of miles of enemy territory before seizing and holding Jerusalem?” I’m not offering the students a replacement for the lecture, or an excuse for not attending (“I watched the video on YouTube, so I’ve already got the key messages”). Rather, I’m attempting to get them excited about what is to come.

Elizabeth Karol used a virtual video tour of a building to enable students to have access to ‘behind the scenes’ services in a building. These services are usually in tight spaces making it difficult for large groups of students to actually see the services as installed whilst listening to a commentary. The recording of interviews in the service areas with the building engineers gave students a valuable insight into the technologies used in the running of a ‘green’ building in Perth.

Research: How Video Production Affects Student Engagement

edX 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:

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

An interesting study from the EdX people on using videos in an online course.
