Video-supported learning is becoming an increasingly important part of contemporary education. Many universities and digital libraries have incorporated video into their instructional materials and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) are becoming increasingly important. Mirroring the widespread adoption of video-based learning systems, in the last decade there has been an increase in research on the topic and many empirical studies have been conducted.

In this one-hour webinar we will explore the topic with Niels Brouwer (Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands) and Blair Stevenson (Oulu University of Applied Sciences, Finland) who will describe some of their recent research activities on this topic.

Should researchers focus on users’ viewing behaviour and satisfaction levels in relation to streaming educational video? Does current research indicate the most effective ways to present students with media-based learning content and if this is the case what are which are they?
