Why My MOOC is Not Built on Video - MOOC Report

Why My MOOC is Not Built on Video - MOOC Report | MOOCs, SPOCs and next generation Open Access Learning | Scoop.it
Why didn’t we have more video? The short answer is budget and time: making good-quality videos is expensive & making simple yet effective educational videos is time consuming, if not necessarily costly. #NumericalMOOC was created on-the-fly, with little budget. But here’s my point: expensive, high-production-value videos are not necessary to achieve a quality learning experience.

The fixation with videos in MOOCs, online courses and blended learning is worrisome.

Question: How does video production affect student engagement in MOOCs?

 

How we went about it: We measured engagement by how long students watched each video and also whether they attempted to answer post-video assessment problems.

Preparing the course is labour intensive. It involves recording video lectures in a MOOC Studio as well as defining assignments and evaluations. The preparation time is of course smaller if you start from a well prepared course that you have been teaching for an extended time and for which you have pedagogical ressources readily available.

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.
