Using video for teaching and assessing remotely
Problem: This client was required to teach learners all over the world and in particular in remote regions. They also needed to assess a lot of the learners work. It is an agricultural business and requires a lot of practical skills training and demonstrations which proved to be very challenging due to the remoteness of the learners. So they were looking for a way to use video for the teaching and deliver via their LMS. They also needed to track the progress of the learners.
Solution: They now have all their educators building teaching material with VidVersity creating video for teaching and controlling their material including keeping it up to date and dynamic. They found traditional text based learning was not a great way to teach practical skills: changing a horse shoe, operating a quad bike safely etc.
They are also using VidVersity Benchmark so their learners can submit video assessments straight from their mobile phones. They were very worried with old online text based methods of assessment because their assessment really requires ‘doing’, but due to geographical challenges it was impossible to send someone on site to assess demonstrations. Time differences were also a real challenge. Now the students can video themselves out in the field and send back to the teacher.
