[webinar, recording] Learning and instruction videos: design, production, use #video #education #talk #tugraz

Last week I gave a short webinar about „learning and instruction videos: design, production, use“ for the eduhub network. Now also the recording is available:

[talk] More than a MOOC – Seven Learning and Teaching Scenarios to Use MOOCs in Higher Education and Beyond #mooc #imoox #research #tugraz

I prepared for the „International Seminar on Linguistics and Literature“ held by Fac. of Letters, Universitas Muhammadiyah Purwokerto, in Central Java, Indonesia, a talk about „More than a MOOC – Seven Learning and Teaching Scenarios to Use MOOCs in Higher Education and Beyond„. My main idea was to present how manigfold MOOCs can be used, if the content is available as Open Educational Resource. It is just great to see how flexible online teaching can be.
The talk was recorded and is accessible on YouTube:

[publication] Automatic Authentication of Students at an Interactive Learning-Video Platform #tugraz #edil19 #edmedia19 #research

Our publication about „Automatic Authentication of Students at an Interactive Learning-Video Platform“ at this year ED-Media conference in Amsterdam is online available:

There are many reasons for the implementation of authentication on learning platforms. For instance, it is required for the teachers to identify individual students if the learning platform offers some kind of assessment. In addition, authentication is the base for a successful monitoring of the attendance of the students. Compulsory attendance is often applied because many positive effects have been reported by authors of several studies. To monitor the attendance at online videos interactive components can be applied. Another benefit of such interactive components is that they help retain the attention of the students. This study was carried out to examine how the students used a video learning platform which provides interactive components of the videos as part of a course offered at Graz University of Technology. Up until now, a major drawback of this platform has been that the students have been required to register manually on the platform. Now, students are able to use the platform without manual registration and authentication, because these steps happen automatically via the main learning platform that provides all of the course materials. Furthermore, the course design and the application of the interactive components, presenting multiple-choice questions, are evaluated. It is pointed out that the concept improves the performance of the students and equips the teacher with valuable feedback regarding the students‘ interests.

[publication] Professor YouTube and Their Interactive Colleagues How Enhanced Videos and Online Courses Change the Way of Learning #youtube #tugraz #research #edil19 #digitalnatives

Our publication about „Professor YouTube and Their Interactive Colleagues How Enhanced Videos and Online Courses Change the Way of Learning“ at this year ED-Media conference in Amsterdam is online available:

Although, videos for teaching and learning have been established for many years, transferring of knowledge has changed tremendously within the past decade. Students increasingly consume learning content via videos. In this context, the triumph of YouTube in becoming a main source for learning is astonishing. In combination with an increasing use of online courses, videos however, also need to be focused from a didactical perspective. This fact is one out of a couple of interesting results from 2018’s survey amongst first-year students of Graz University of Technology. This survey focuses on the student’s IT preferences and competence; it has been executed annually since 2007. Based on more than 9500 datasets, this long-term survey records changes in ownership of students‘ IT equipment, IT driven communicative behavior, and use of apps as well as social media services over a period of twelve years. One further remarkable result is the very clear rejection of Facebook. Currently, even SMS is more frequently used than Facebook. Thus, it can be stated that Facebook is no longer a major platform for first-year students.

[webinar] Learning and instruction videos: design, production, use #tugraz #eduhub

In July I will give a short webinar about „Learning and instruction videos: design, production, use“ based on our long tradition in doing videos especially for the MOOC-platform iMooX.at:

The talk comes up with the topic of learning and instruction videos and shows the current forms of application. Different formats as well as creation possibilities are presented, which can be converted by today’s technologies partly also with manageable financial resources. In addition, theoretical approaches concerning the instructional design are addressed. In order to facilitate the production of learning and instructional videos in the future, a template for the development of learning and instructional videos, the „Learning-Video-Canvas“, shows how to approach the planning of video projects for learning issues.

The participation is free and I like to thank the eduhub-community for hosting this talk: [Free registration for the webinar]
