Learning through Digital Storytelling: Exploring Entertainment Techniques in Lecture Video
Choi, Grace Y.
Educational Media International, v55 n1 p49-63 2018
Although online education is popularized, it is in a developing stage that continues to struggle with communicating and engaging with students. The question remains on how students can be better engaged in online educational materials that are presented in asynchronous media, especially in lecture videos. Thus, using engagement theory, the present study explored how online lecture videos can be improved by incorporating entertainment education. Using a public lecture video found on YouTube, an online survey (N = 133) was conducted to identify digital storytelling techniques and their effects. Results revealed that these techniques that are often utilized in entertainment became meaningful components to increase student engagement and learning outcomes. However, they can also negatively affect instructor credibility, which could suggest the need to increase instructors' skills. The implications for the development of lecture videos using entertainment and its potential to positively impact online education are discussed.
