2:30 PM - 3:30 PM Thursday, March 23


Palm 4

Web video is seeing massive growth, and learners are not only consuming video but also making it. The literature indicates that there is an abundance of both underuse and overuse of videos in learning environments. Long, not engaging, and ill-prepared videos are very common.

In this session, you will learn about implementation strategies that have been effective for embedding video into the learning environment, based on sound learning and cognitive theories, using researched data and best practices from professionals. You will explore specific findings about best practices such as length of a video, how to best use captions, and which types of video to use for education and training. The answers can greatly help instructors, training professionals, administrators, instructional designers, and students in determining the best use of instructional video.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How people can learn better and faster with video
  • How cognitive load can be reduced through video
  • How multimedia theory can be used for video production
  • How video can enhance a teacher’s presence
  • How video captions can help reinforce content
