First of all, we all like or even love videos. Over 6 billion hours of video are viewed on YouTube every month! That’s almost an hour for every person on earth (source: YouTube). It’s the combination of audio and visuals that attracts us so much—short clips with a clear objective—and they’re easy to consume. Secondly, video is becoming easier (and cheaper) to produce and publish. And, finally, learners expect to see videos as part of a training method.
All sorts of videos are watched for different purposes, some examples include enjoying a funny cat, learning how to change a flat tire, or understanding what TIPA is. You can already tell that the flat tire and the TIPA videos will be more educational. So, how does one make a good educational video… that can be incorporated into the learning experience?
