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.

Lauren Gawne writes: Given that the average PhD thesis would take a full day to read aloud, it’s no mean feat for a research student to distill the importance of their work into just a couple of minutes.

Thanks to my good friend Dawn Gilmore for sending this to me. As soon as I can refine my dissertation into a few hours of defense....I'll work on a 2-minute project! Thanks Dawn!

6 Great Videos on Teaching Critical Thinking

6 Great Videos on Teaching Critical Thinking | Teaching and Learning in HE | Scoop.it
What we have for you today is a great series of videos on critical thinking. As a teacher, you can use these videos with your students to start a discussion on what it means to think critically and introduce them to the concept of logical fallacies. The videos are animated in such a way that your students will find it easy to grasp hard concepts .Enjoy

Kritisch denken en reflecteren, te weining mensen doen het. Leer het eerst zelf en draag het dan over. Mooi gemaakt.
