This study examined the use of authentic experiential-based videos in self-explanation activities on 32 polytechnic students' learning and motivation, using a mixed method quasi-experimental design. The control group analysed a set of six pre-recorded videos of a subject performing the standing broad jump (SBJ). The experimental group captured videos of two subjects performing six variations of the SBJ. They then proceeded to analyse those videos as with the control group. All students then attempted a worksheet designed to elicit various levels of principled understanding of the topic on "projectile motion". In addition, data on students' motivation to learn and learning outcomes were measured by using three subscales of the Motivational Strategies for Questionaire (MSLQ)--task value, critical thinking, and self-efficacy--both before and after the intervention. Data were also collected through online pre- and post-tests, classroom observations as well as reflection journals. No significant differences between the experimental and control groups in terms of the post-intervention results were found ("p" greater than 0.05). However, the results suggested that use of experiential-based videos and video-based tools may in fact be more beneficial for students who are weaker in critical thinking and self-efficacy, to gain a better understanding of their learning.
