Videos in the curriculum – What does the research tell us?

Presented by Dr. Negin Mirriahi (UNSW) & Dr. Abelardo Pardo (University of Sydney)

UNSW Learning Analytics & Data Science in Education Research Group

Back to meetings

With blended learning, flipped classrooms, and massive open online courses (MOOCs) gaining momentum in higher education, there is an increasing demand for integrating videos effectively into the curriculum. One such way is through the use of a video annotation tool whereby students make comments about the video while watching it changing what may have once been considered a passive and individual learning experience to a more active and collaborative one. However, to date, there is limited research on how students actually engage with videos and commenting features of a video annotation tool. This seminar will present recent research using learning analytics methods to discover how students in various contexts (academic and professional development) have engaged with videos and the annotations and commenting features when integrated as part of the curriculum with different instructional conditions. The findings can inform future curriculum and course design that integrates video in ways that extends social and active learning and provides opportunity for reflective practice and self-regulated learning in blended, flipped, and online learning environments.
