Survey Shows Faculty and Student Benefits From Video-Based Learning
Student and Faculty Benefits of Video-based Learning
Education today is in the midst of a dramatic change. Probably one of the most stable industries for over a century, education is responding to today's economic and social realities by transforming its practices, structures and pedagogies. Some key findings from the study that demonstrate this include:
- The two biggest motivational factors driving video-based learning are student engagement (89% agree) and blended/virtual learning (79% agree).
- Additionally, a majority of respondents agree bring-your-own-device (BYOD) initiatives lead to the expansion of video-capable devices.
- 58% of respondents are currently providing and 28% are planning to provide video-based learning.
"These results demonstrate the power of video-based learning. A system that delivers simultaneously on several core needs for schools –for example one that reaches a wider audience, improves engagement, and lowers costs for educational institutions. It can also do this at the right time, in the right place, and on the right device for students. This rare opportunity to do more with less plays right into the needs of today's educators as well as learners across the spectrum."
