Media Player Tool Use, Satisfaction with Online Lectures and Examination Performance
Bassili, John N.; Joordens, Steve
Journal of Distance Education, v22 n2 p93-107 2008
Media players allow students to pause lectures and to replay portions at will, two capabilities with potentially important pedagogical value that are not available in face-to-face lectures. The first study showed that many students use and value these media player features when watching online introductory psychology lectures. The second study showed that use of the features was correlated with superior exam performance, a learning outcome that was at least partially mediated by increased satisfaction with the learning approach. Together, the findings demonstrate that students who used the features made available by the media-players were more satisfied with the course, and performed better in it.
