No longer regulated to the clunky VHS players, video-based learning can be used by your staff to reach students across a range of disciplines. Faculty is able to use current content to fuel lively talks on current topics. Staff are able to get the following gains off video-based learning. When used appropriately, video-based learning:
1. Drives consistent messaging
Video-based learning lets you manage the message and branding across your institution. Students view the same video-based course, regardless of their instructor. Staff are confident learners receive the same content, in the same way. Video-based learning gives a consistent message to staff and students.
2. Helps students attain mastery learning
Teachers can break long video courses into microlearning events. Learners can review content just before they need to do it, such as reviewing tips before an interview. Students are able to review content on questions they failed right after an exam. Videos let students into operating or interrogation rooms with experts. Students can fast forward or skip content they already know. Students can view and review videos as many times as they need until mastery learning is attained
3. Grabs learner’s attention, inspires and engages learners
Video-based learning lets teachers create more student-centered learning events. Staff can play a video in class to spur discussion. Students can watch videos to look at opposite sides of a case study. Learners can view past research to quickly come up to speed on a project. Students are able to dive deep into the topics they chose. When given control of their learning, students are motivated.
4. Reduces costs
Programs using video-based learning save money. Staff can record popular talks. Institutions can tape required sessions, like Freshman seminars. Teachers can assign students lectures to view prior to class. Class time can now be spent answering questions or doing lab work. Staff can use videos to show new students how to upload assignments. Videos can show staff how to enter grades in the new system. Rather than paying speakers to come into the classroom, teachers can send students video links to interviews.
5. Works across devices
When done correctly, video-based learning is easy to access and portable. Learners can access content across many devices – from cell phones to tablets. Students can view recorded lectures when it is convenient for them, on their preferred device.
