Videos for the best online learning experience
Video components 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.
Not every online course requires a video component. Videos require a thorough planning and management throughout the whole production cycle. Below, we break the educational video production to a biteable pieces to help you plan, prepare, produce and manage your educational video content.

Your course might benefit from educational video components if:
- You run lectures with similar content regularly and often
- You see the value for your students to come back to the same lecture materials a few times
- You would like your materials to be accessed by those who are not able to attend the class on campus
- You would like to build a different learning path and experience for diverse learners
- You create an asynchronous course and would like to add a personal touch to your teaching materials
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 part of an independent online course or a course with scheduled contact sessions on the campus or online.
