Video Development Methods for CDIO-Based Project Courses
Paper in proceedings, 2018
Video utilization can be a powerful tool for teachers to stimulate students’ interest and support flexible and adaptive learning. Successful video-based learning implementation cannot be assured without careful consideration regarding desired quality, learning outcomes and video development methods. The investigation and sharing of experiences considering video development is indispensable and will contribute to spreading a culture of easily made, peer-reviewed videos, which will enhance teaching and learning. For CDIO-based courses, it is required that the video development methods are agile and cost-effective in production as to support continuous update of videos relevant for the course and other course activities. In this paper, we identify and describe video development methods from different CDIO-based project courses. The methods are classified based on the content type, the production style, the required resources and the video characteristics. All presented video development methods follow our general framework of video development process which has been previously published and consists of four interwoven steps - topic selection, learning objectives mapping, content generation and video recording. Based on semi-structured interviews with the course teachers, we present their experiences with those different development methods to create content specific videos pertaining to various Conceive-Design-Implement-Operate topics. As outcome, we suggest our preferable video development method depending on video content category. We conclude that the choice of video development method must consider the audience’s characteristics and needs while video content should be aligned with the course content, other learning activities and the literature. The video development methods suggested and described in this paper will assist educators to choose an appropriate video development method for their own courses and maximize the videos’ contribution to student learning.
