Abstract

Video as a tool for teaching and learning in higher education is a multimedia application with considerable promise (Whatley and Ahmad, 2007). Including video to supplement more traditional text based resources within online support material has the potential to encourage students to become more active learners. This paper reports the preliminary experiences of a project which used screencasting to produce online videos. The purpose was to investigate if the concept would be embraced by the students, encourage active learning and have a positive impact on results. The paper details the innovation, assesses the use of screencasting technology and looks at the potential for the use of video technology in other learning scenarios.
