How To Make Your Educational Videos More Effective

By December 27, 2017September 13th, 2023No Comments

Keep Them Short

Research shows that students do not engage with online lecture content in the same way as they do face-to-face lectures.

Shorter and single concept videos of 6 minutes or less are much more effective learning tools than long lectures.

Be Precise

Don’t exaggerate or include unwanted details in educational videos.

Students tend to learn better from a coherent summary

Use Visuals

Use pictures and visual data to explain a concept while you narrate.

Students learn better when they have multiple inputs from which to IF create different mental models and build connections .

Write An Outline Or Script

Your project starts with pre-production, not production, so write an outline or script for your lecture or scene.

Planning the video out with a script or outline will save a lot of time during filming and post-production.

Link Your Videos To Activities

Ensure students actually watch the videos and provide them with consolidation opportunities by linking the viewing of the video with a follow-up activity, like a short quiz.
