6 ways video technologies are fundamentally shaping education

Video’s impact in K-12 and higher-ed classrooms continues to grow, as educators and students report increases in achievement, engagement and active content creation, according to a new survey from Kaltura.

Ninety-nine percent of institutions report they have teachers regularly incorporating video in their curriculum. More than half are using video for student assignments, with 21 percent reporting that more than half of their students actively create video (up from 10 percent in 2016). Seventy-three percent of higher education institutions use video for remote teaching and learning.

The survey gathered responses from more than 1,000 educators, administrators, students, IT and media staff, and instructional designers.

Ninety-three percent of respondents said they believe video increases students’ satisfaction with their learning experience, and 85 percent said it increases student achievement. Seventy percent said they think video increases the sense of affiliation of alumni with the institution and 78 percent said it makes the on-boarding of new employees smoother.

Institutions use video for:
Classroom showings (70 percent)
Supplementary course material (63 percent)
Lecture capture (59 percent)
Student assignments (59 percent)
Recording students practicing in class (54 percent)
Flipped classrooms (53 percent)

Twenty-six percent of educators who responded to the survey said more than half of the educators in their institutions use video in their classes.

Active use of video by students (that is, creating or repurposing video as part of their coursework as opposed to merely watching it passively) is still at an earlier stage. Twenty-one percent of respondents (13 percent of educators) report more than 50 percent of their students are actively
using video.
