Active Learning with Interactive Videos: Creating Student-Guided Learning Materials
Baker, Ariana
Journal of Library & Information Services In Distance Learning, v10 n3-4 p79-87 2016
Distance learning programs across the country continue to grow and evolve. In order to support these programs, librarians are often expected to convert face-to-face classes and reference sessions to the online environment. Due to the necessity of explaining information literacy concepts and demonstrating the access and use of library resources, videos are often used to teach these online sessions. However, most librarians are not video production experts. We are either self-taught or taught by other amateurs, and as a result we tend to repeatedly use the same few tools and techniques. Fortunately, there are many tools librarians can use to make videos more engaging and interactive. This article discusses interactive elements such as embedded assessments, hotspots, audio/video lectures, audio/video discussions, and analytics. It also evaluates a variety of tools based on cost, ease of use, availability, accessibility, and analytics.
