Can Open Access to video tutorials make educators work harder?*
Experiment with open access to video tutorials as key learning platforms where students learn, contribute and educators use the teaching time in a more effective manner.
Increasing access to video tutorials for learning has been revolutionary. The model of giving open access to educational tutorial videos could bring down classroom hours. Educators’ efforts for imparting knowledge on certain key areas could be enhanced by framing tutorials with vital learning factors. With the flexibility of rewinding and repeating tutorials in digital medium gives an depth understanding of the subjects. Open Source tutorial production is an emerging area with greater resource that academia and the educator community could tap into. I will be sharing an analysis on the impact of video tutorials with experiments in under graduate language classes, the gradual process of learning and unlearning, making mistakes and enhancing the educational tools.
