Engaging the Online Student: Instructor-Created Video Content for the Online Classroom
Underdown, Kimber; Martin, Jeff
Journal of Instructional Research, v5 p8-12 2016
The online platform in higher education is growing at a rapid pace; however, detractors claim the lack of personal connection between student and teacher presence will never allow online to reach the same level of quality instruction found in a live classroom setting. While there will always be drawbacks with both the live classroom and online learning platforms, the use of instructor-prepared video in the online classroom has allowed professors to engage their students at a level often higher than that of the traditional classroom experience. This paper will discuss the current literature on the topic of online classroom video and present suggested uses for those given the opportunity to reach students through the virtual classroom setting.
