Optimal Video Length for Student Engagement | edX

Optimal Video Length for Student Engagement | edX | Video for Learning | Scoop.it
theo kuechel's insight:

I think this supports a conclusion that many of us, using video clips in learning contexts may have been aware of, or suspected. I first recognised this when I was working on the Teaching and Learning with Digital Video Assets project (2004) with the University of Hull, and later on the EU Edutube Plus project (20011). I think where more analysis is needed is whether subjec content or the aesthetic/ filmic style affects the optimum length. The avaialability of tools

to create more interactive video content may also add a new variable to the mix. If you are using video clips in school I would welcome your comments below.

Predictions for Educational TV in the 1930s

Predictions for Educational TV in the 1930s | Video for Learning | Scoop.it
Before it became known as the idiot box, television was seen as the best hope for bringing enlightenment to the American people...

...

In light of the current buzz surrounding flipped classrooms, MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) and video lecture-capture; this piece on Matt Novak's excellent Paleofuture blog at Smithsonian.com, serves to remind us that educational TV/broadcasting; (now online video), is nothing new and perhaps offers us a clearer historical and academic context for evaluating the current use of video and broadcast technologies for learning.


The drawings used to illustrate the article are superb, and worthy of inclusion in any serious presentation about online learning!

Upcoming: YouTube Video Player Introduces Storyboards and Timeline Thumbnailing

YouTube will be adding another ferature which should be very useful for educators, being able to show thumbnails will be ideal for developing digital story telling, review, questioning and predictive activities. 


Amit Agarwal writes:

 

"The next version of YouTube video player will have one very useful feature – you can hover your mouse to any point in the video, without actually moving the playhead, and the YouTube player will show you an image thumbnail of the video frame at the position.

 

Thus you can easily get a visual gist of the whole video while the clip is still buffering.

 

I recorded a screencast video and that should give you a better idea of this new feature."

30 minutes or more: Why web content keeps getting longer

30 minutes or more: Why web content keeps getting longer | Video for Learning | Scoop.it
The rule of thumb used to be that web content shouldn't be longer than five minutes an episode -- a rule that's pretty much dead here in 2012, with the spread of longer runtimes into least-suspected places, such as YouTube.

...


This is interesting because a great deal of recent research suggested that educators and students prefer short clips for learning purposes.


  • Is this still the case?


  • Or do we need a rethink on how we offer video in our learning resources?  Have the high quality HD properties of contemporary online video changed how we can use video for learning. 


Your thoughts on this would be very welcome in the comments.

TED-Ed | A New Video Platform for learning

TED-Ed | A  New Video Platform for learning | Video for Learning | Scoop.it

After the launch of their YouTube channel TED Ed have now announced the TED Ed video platform - with the strapline "Lessons Worth Sharing"


As you would expect, the platform is built around content from TED Ed partners and YouTube Edu Partners. Content is organised by subject and context and teachers can build various learning activities, and questions around this content.


More importantly the platforms potential reaches out beyond the featured content, orgamised into subjects and themes to any content in YouTube - and that is its strength.  As Chris Anderson of TED states in his post:


"the goal is to allow any teacher to take a video of their choice (yes, any video on YouTube, not just ours) and make it the heart of a lesson"


Teachers can register to join the platform and create their own video based  learning resources. I think this is an important development in video for learning and the important  thing is that it is open to all around the world.
