Video in e-learning:

Use video for:

  • Expert views
  • Short pre recorded lectures
  • Demonstration (e.g. first aid)
  • Scenarios (e.g. interview to show body language)
  • Software simulations

Best practice

  • Keep videos short and to the point
  • Use videos for emphasis
  • Reinforce learning with activities or questions
  • Make videos interactive
  • Avoid autoplay
  • Provide media and volume controls
  • Provide progress and status info
  • Follow up with questions or a summary
  • Use videos to demonstrate how to do, or how not to do something
  • Include a transcript
