  13. 13. Los Angeles | London | New Delhi | Singapore | Washington DC | Boston Generalizations • Easily bored/distracted, but want to learn • Looking for something just right • A large part of their educational experience has included video • They actually say “flipped classroom” • Tend to watch 2-8 minutes
  14. 14. Los Angeles | London | New Delhi | Singapore | Washington DC | Boston On the length…. • “I strongly suggest that educational videos should have a maximum time length of 30 minutes rather than an hour long.” • “10-15 minute videos are the best, especially when they supplement material already covered in class. Helpful because you can go back and watch at your own pace.” • “I think that the best length of an educational video is about 5- 10 minutes. Any more than that and I tend to switch off.” • “If I am very interested in a topic then I will be more likely to watch the whole video.”
  15. 15. Los Angeles | London | New Delhi | Singapore | Washington DC | Boston What makes for ‘bad’ video • Monotone speakers “Anything where the narrator doesn't speak in a monotone. It would also be more effective if they were short and sweet in length.” • Wrong audience level • Not easily identified as relevant • Odd sounds or bad audio • Distracted speakers .

  21. 21. Los Angeles | London | New Delhi | Singapore | Washington DC | Boston Make it worth the time • Know why you want to use video. • Inform students WHY they are watching. • Use video that clearly meets the objective. • Use video that challenges students to think differently and show that you are willing to be challenged too. • Don’t stick with the same video year after year. Unless it is really that good.
