The Use of Web-Based Video for Instruction of GIS and Other Digital Geographic Methods
Rudow, Joshua; Sounny-Slitine, M. Anwar
Journal of Geography, v114 n4 p168-175 2015
This article presents a case study that highlights the benefits and limitations of Web-based video in lab sections of The Geographer's Craft, an upper-level undergraduate course in which students apply digital geographic methods. Over three years (2010-2013), the authors experimented with different teaching strategies utilizing Web-based video for lab lectures and software demonstrations. This article presents three different approaches for its application, from inside and outside the classroom, to a "flipped classroom" setting. The authors argue that Web-based video is a valuable tool for teaching digital geographic research methods and techniques while allowing for greater focus on theory and application.
