The Effects of Educational Video on Student Achievement

Professor Chris Tisdell

Mathews Building, Room 102

Type of event: 


The use of online video for learning now appears to be “business as usual” for many universities and industry players. As such, the practice of employing online video in higher education seems to have acquired a lustre of naturalised worth. It is precisely this view of naturalised worth that is problematic. For example, the evidence regarding the effectiveness of online video on learning is yet to catch up and support its popularity within our institutions. If online video is going to be a sustained and viable approach to student learning, then there must be compelling evidence that it can form a workable solution for student learning.

In this presentation, Chris will discuss research into the effects of educational video on student achievement. What has worked? What hasn't? What can we learn from this?
