Video can be as good as an instructor in communicating facts or demonstrating procedures to assist in mastery learning where a student can view/demonstarte complex procedures as many times as they need to.
There are many benefits to using video in education as shown in several decades of research. Salman Khan describes the transformative way video can impact on teaching and learning and encourages teachers to consider the flipped classroom model where learners can digest lecture content at their pace and explore content more deeply during class time. This project was designed to address the functional aspects of assessment but also investigate the potential of learning associated with assessment.
Group work and collaboration is a key part of academic studies. However, it is difficult to ensure every member of the group actively participates. This is especially the case in online courses with group written submissions. The use of a simple, collaborative, video-creation tool makes it easy for each participant to submit short videos outlining their contributions to the group assessment. This helps the assessor establish the role the person played and how active they were in contributing to the submission/paper. It also provides an important option for peer review activities.
There is strong evidence that digital video reporting can inspire and engage students when incorporated into student-centred learning activities through:
- increased student motivation
- enhanced learning experience
- higher marks
- development potential for deeper learning of the subject development potential for deeper learning of the subject development potential for deeper learning of the subject
