This shift in teaching and learning requires more than just a camera and an eager instructor, however. For example, student attention span has shortened to only about 8 seconds and making a video engaging “requires a thorough examination of the medium to find the best ways to make it as useful as possible” (xvii). Without regurgitating the entire text, I’ll outline a few aspects of Köster’s book that stood out most.
I recently came across some great instructor videos by a guy who goes by Professor Dave. He’s actually a Carleton grad, and his videos (on lots of science-related topics) are well developed, attractive, and engaging. Instructors who connect an assessment to these videos could easily have some great learning with Professor Dave! Dave’s style also gives some cool ideas of how instructors can film and produce their own instructional videos! –dann

- Should you teach to the camera/viewer or
- Should you teach a student who is also on camera and film that interaction?
This video featuring Dann Hurlbert, Carleton College’s Media & Design Guru succinctly recaps a 2018 study from ASU’s Katelyn M Cooper, Lu Ding, Michelle Stephens, Michelene T. H. Chi, and Sara E Brownell.
