  • Education Through Video

    The use of video content has brought the learning experience into the homes and offices of thousands of new students worldwide.

    New online educational platforms, such as Moocs, are leveraging video to create whole new communities of educators and learners on a scale incomparable with the physical classroom environment, marking this as more than just the gradual next stage of the digital evolution. Leading Moocs, such as Coursera, Udacity and edX, are arguably more familiar than the names of Stanford, Harvard and Princetown which bore them. In less than a year, edX alone has attracted 800,000 students from 192 countries. And here in the UK, Futurelearn, which has 21 of the UK’s top universities on board, will soon be attracting tens of thousands of students.

    These growth statistics then logically fuel an increase for the demand and supply of video to be used as an integral part of the curriculum material; and increasingly that demand is for professionally produced and broadcast quality footage. Video as a core element of this brave new world reflects that this is more than just a technological revolution in education. Where success has already been achieved, it has been as a result of engineers’ appetites to embrace and work with creative designers, especially video and film producers, to ensure this technology delivers the thing great educators have always known to be important – captivating their audience.

    But as this transformation takes its grip, challenges are emerging which educators and their video content producing partners need to consider. In a recent webinar, Andy Jones, Head of Professional Learning Services at Thomson Reuters, and Jon Harman, Learning & Media Director, University of Law, discussed some of these.

    In a wider context, Moocs and their video utilising contemporaries are leading some to question the very role of the traditional university experience; is that in jeopardy as more and more people use video and broadcast technology to access education anywhere and at anytime? If this change serves to complement the conventional, physical, and selective teaching experience by enthusing the next generation of university undergraduates, does it have the necessary staying power to achieve this? The wider digital landscape is blighted with examples of new ventures whose light shone all too briefly. A recent edX course on circuits and electronics may have attracted 155,000 students, but only 7,200 completed it. And what does ‘completion’ mean anyway? Can a student truly be examined in a virtual video space? A survey conducted by the Instructional Technology Council has shown that only 1 per cent of American community colleges are offering course credits or certificates for Mooc completion.

    But there can be little doubt of some outstanding advantages that are presented by video. At the top of this list, online video environments can offer the opportunity for learners to accumulate knowledge in a way that fits around their business and personal lives. We already digest huge quantities of video and film of a purely entertaining form; it is a medium we are not just comfortable with, but excited by. By harnessing this mentality, education suddenly becomes a natural extension of the way we already live our lives, rather than the traditional interruptive model of most educational approaches.

    The transformative power of video based learning may just be taking its grip on the educational world, but it is something that non-academic professions have been harnessing for some time. In business, e-learning tools are now commonplace in staff training and assessment programmes. Advances in video production and broadcast software are allowing more organisations to use this format to share knowledge via live and on-demand webinars. And the exponential growth of social media platforms and digital communication vehicles continue to impact on our ability, and willingness, to search for and share knowledge.

    Video based learning is here to stay; the next battle is to ensure that quantity comes with quality.
