This exploratory study investigated the use of Danmaku in video-based lectures as a method to enhance learners' interactions and course engagement in online instruction. Visually, Danmaku is real-time, horizontal, text-based display of commentary that uses subtitles in a manner widely employed in Animation, Comic, and Game (ACG) videos in Asian countries. To assess the potential value of Danmaku for online instruction and learner interaction, this study employed an inductive content analysis using Danmaku from 934 online lecture videos. Data were collected from "," a video-sharing website based in China. This study concluded that Danmaku could function as an effective way to enhance learners' interaction, increase course engagement, and improve learning experiences while participating in online video-based lectures.
