What are the educational video types?

Usually, educational video components of a course are designed as prerecorded lectures (with or without slides), filmed interview, demonstration, visualisation of a concept, individual or group feedback session, Q&A session, or a review.

Educational videos could be filmed for an independent online course, or used for a hybrid course, where online materials mixed with activities on campus.

Some videos designed for independent learning experience require a thorough planning and special attention. Videos could include interactive components, such as quizzes that support students’ engagement. Interactive questions built into the video are particularly useful when online course designed as asynchronous or independent. Simple video lectures can be also a great way to support your students with the accessible learning content.
