What 6.9 million clicks tell us about how to fix online education

What 6.9 million clicks tell us about how to fix online education | Online Video in Education | Scoop.it

In a paper published this spring, the CSAIL team outlined some key findings on what online learners want from videos. These include:


Brevity (viewers generally tune out after six minutes)


Informality, with professors seated at a desk, not standing behind a podium


Lively visuals rather than static PowerPoint slides


Fast talkers (professors seen as the most engaging spoke at 254 words per minute)


More pauses, so viewers can soak in complex diagrams


Web-friendly lessons (existing videos broken into shorter chunks are less effective than ones crafted for online audiences)


Via Peter Mellow
Stephen Bright's insight:

Analysis from MIT about the features of online videos used in MOOCs that online learners prefer. Interesting analysis for MOOCs but these features could be applied to videos used in any implementation of blended learning.

 

Also shows that the slick, production theatre videos with a highly professional look may not be the ones that students prefer to watch.

Pluto.TV offers curated online videos as alternative to YouTube, TV - Los Angeles Times

Pluto.TV offers curated online videos as alternative to YouTube, TV - Los Angeles Times | Online Video in Education | Scoop.it
Ilya Pozin's 2-year-old daughter wasn't about to abandon daddy's comfortable lap.
Stephen Bright's insight:

I've had a quick look at Pluto.tv (named after the wannabe planet) and it looks like a very interesting concept - curated channels of Youtube material which create a very tv-like viewing experience. There are dozens of channels The fact that they use human beings to do the curation (not just reviews or social media) gets my vote as well.

 

And it's free! What more could you want as an alternative to all the rubbish tv you currently get on 'live' tv - ANOTHER cooking competition, ANOTHER talent reality hunt, ANOTHER building show... etc. etc. Rant over - but I feel better now.

Make any video your lesson. Edit a video by cropping it, adding your voice or embedding questions. Then, track your students with powerful hassle-free analytics.

 

My rating: 8/10

Stephen Bright's insight:

Free for teachers, another tool option for teachers who want to make videos more interactive and engaging for students. Good, clean easy-to-use interface with a variety of questions possible. You can also make audio notes which explain the purpose of watching the video and questions you want students to answer. You can also create a classroom space for students to view your annotated videos.

 

 My initial impressions are very positive.

LectureScape | Data-Driven Lecture Video Interface

LectureScape | Data-Driven Lecture Video Interface | Online Video in Education | Scoop.it

My rating: still in test stage not yet released for public use

Stephen Bright's insight:

Lecturescape is a video player driven by a set of data-driven video interaciton techniques  which enhance the video timeline, text search and visual summarisation. For example if a learner views a particular segment of video, this is recorded as a personal learning trace which can be replayed by clicking on the segment. A strip of visual highlights is created below the video to enable a quick overview of important points.

 

This is an MIT initiative led by Juho Kim. It will be available as a free tool for anyone to try out - check this website for future release details http://juhokim.com/lecturescape/

 My rating: 10/10

Stephen Bright's insight:

Wow! British Pathe have released their complete 85,000 movie archive onto Youtube. Probably mostly of interest to historians and media history specialists.  Spanning the years from 1896 to 1976, the collection includes footage – not only from Britain, but from around the globe – ofmajor events, famous faces, fashion trends, travel, sport and culture. The archive is particularly strong in its coverage of the First and Second World Wars.

eduCanon: interactive video. unleashed.

eduCanon: interactive video. unleashed. | Online Video in Education | Scoop.it
Flipped and Blended Interactive Video Learning Platform

 

My Rating: still exploring (but looks promising).

Stephen Bright's insight:

eduCanon is an online learning environment to create and share interactive video lessons. Teachers begin with any YouTube, Vimeo, or TeacherTube video content (screencasts, Khan Academy, Minute Physics, TED, NOVA, etc.) and transform what is traditionally passive content into an active experience for students. By time-linking activities that students engage with as the video progresses the content is segmented into digestible components - increasing student engagement and, through our real-time monitoring, informing the next day’s lesson planning.

 

Some nice features - you can't fast-forward through the material, but you can rewind to review something. Questions can also include feedback for responses chosen, and the video automatically pauses at the point the question is asked. Also there is a large range of question types - not just multiple choice - Reflective pause, fill in the blank, free response, check all that apply. 

 

You can also print out worksheets and the question editor has a built-in equation editor for maths. How well this is used will, of course, depend on the skill of the teacher in constructing relevant and challenging questions, but it is definitely a step up from other video interaction web-based tools.

ThingLink video - watched the video promo and if it works as  the demo shows then should be very easy to use and useful for annotating existing videos with clickable links. This is the 'early access' version so not sure if that means 'beta test' or not.

 

Anyway, waiting for my free account to be confirmed - after it is I can have a play and add some comments.

What Makes an Online Instructional Video Compelling? (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu

What Makes an Online Instructional Video Compelling? (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Online Video in Education | Scoop.it
EDUCAUSE Review Online
Stephen Bright's insight:

In-depth research from EDUCAUSE with post-graduate students on what makes online instructional video compelling for the student.

 

Surprise, surprise - one factor is when it is directly linked to assessment in some way. Optimum viewing time is reduced (from the EdX research indicating 6-9 mins) to 4 minutes.Four minutes! While I've always disagreed with videoing hours of lectures, this seems extremely brief to enable meaningful coverage of complex concepts.

 

The use of conversational language and humour by the presenter are also factors in creating more compelling online video.

 

Not exactly startling conclusions, but good to have some research which backs up most teachers' intuitive criteria for engaging video. The sample of interviews is quite small (10 students) so there are limits to the generalisation of these findings.

Stephen Bright's insight:

Sounds like another really good idea - haven't tried it yet but would welcome feedback from anyone who has.... It does cost something - 5 grids are $60  US subscription per year (a grid is one class space). The students don't require a subscription but the teacher or lecturer does.

theo kuechel's comment, November 11, 2013 7:23 AM
A point often overlooked; is that the purpose of educational video is; that it is expected to result in a positive learning action, investigation or recorded reflection that can be assessed. Educational video is usually only one part of a learning activity, something quite different from watching a film or TV, which is usually an end in itself. Whilst there are some excellent ‘educational’ TV programmes, for example those produced by the BBC or National Geographic their scope often is too wide for clear focus on a given learning activity. Educational video can now take advantage of a number different formats available e.g. six second cinemagraphs (e.g Vine, animated gifs), animated video-graphics, screencasts which are all suited to short clips. One of the affordances of digital (online) video is that it can be paused, and replayed and reviewed or annotated as part of a learning activity, and delivery is also changing through MOOCS, flipped classrooms and mobile technology.
theo kuechel's comment, November 11, 2013 7:34 AM
agree with some of the commentators that the craft of filmmaking is still very important especially scripting, storyboarding, representation and the grammar of film. These qualities can be present in short and long and multiformat pieces - and students (and teachers) can learn a great deal by being familiar with them. As @rebecca says this has to be seen in relation to a teachers other responsibilities.<br>
