INTERACTIVE VIDEO FOR TEACHING & LEARNINGProfessor Kristen Sosulski, Ed.DNew York University Stern School of Business@sosulski firstname.lastname@example.org kristensosulski.com
In this session you will learn strategies fortelling a story using data. Emphasis will be placedon creating readable and interpretablepresentations.1
IntroductionMany universities and colleges support faculty in the development of robust video lectures. Short videos can replace long lectures. However, how does one know if students are actually watching the videos?The Education Group @ the W.R. Berkley Innovation Lab evaluated several interactive video solutions. 2Copyright 2016 Kristen Sosulski email@example.com @sosulski kristensosulski.com
What is interactive video?Interactive videos provide
1) opportunities for students to actively participate in the video lecture by responding to question and discussion prompts 2) robust analytics that show data by student including responses to questions, viewing time, date / time viewed,3) allow students to rate the video and for faculty to incorporate the results into their teaching, and 4) create opportunities for students to comment and generate discussion around the content and concepts viewed.
My favorite was ZAPTION!5
HOW DOES IT WORK?6
How do students interact with the video?
While a student is watching a video, a question or prompt to discuss the topic appears on the screen, pausing the video. Students can then respond appropriately, after which, the video resumes.
I recommend keeping the video to 3-5 minutes in length. By adding a few questions, you can see how your students respond to your questions and assess their response to the information and concepts presented.
How do you know that students have participated?For each video, the number of unique viewers, the average viewing time and the percentage of students who completed the questions is available through Zaptions analytics interface.
How do you know that students have participated?The professor can see the average score, the average number of skips forward that the students made during the video, and the average rating students gave the video from one out of five stars.
Can you see the data by student?
Yes, in addition to summary data, there are data that the professor can view by student. The analytics provided by student are powerful. For each student you can see the response by question, the question responses (with the correct response highlighted, and the distribution of answers by the class.
USE CASE & EXAMPLE
How I can use this data?
Personally, Ive used this data to inform my weekly mini-lecture. I put slides up that show how well the class as a whole did on the questions asked in the videoI am then able to customize my lecture to address the questions or the areas that may need more clarification. It also signals to students that I am engaged in their learning and monitoring their progress.
See an example of my Zaption video for my data visualization course:
Without these interactive components, it is impossible to gauge whether the student has watched the video and responded to the content. If a professor put effort in creating a video lecture , they want students to watch it. Interactive video platforms like Zaption enables faculty to build on the knowledge the gain rather than repeat it. By using the analytics provided by interactive video platforms, faculty can build on students prior knowledge and observe where they may have struggled based on their responses to the questions embedded within the video. 14Copyright 2016 Kristen Sosulski firstname.lastname@example.org @sosulski kristensosulski.com
