Increasing Learning Efficiency and Quality of Students ́ Homework by Attendance Monitoring and Polls at Interactive Learning Videos

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference paperpeer-review


Due to the fact that students are confronted with a growing amount of texts, colours, figures and shapes and due to their ability to process only a limited number of such information simultaneously, it seems to be obvious that efforts should be made to increase the students' attention-levels. This is important because research results have indicated that selective attention is considered as the most valuable resource in the process of human learning. The application of interaction and communication to the process of learning is a useful strategy to direct the students' attention. It seems to be obvious that this is also true for learning videos. Therefore, this work contains a description of how a video platform with interactive components can be used to support the students and teacher. The video platform is explained and evaluated by analysing its usage in a large teaching course at an institution of higher education. The application of this strategy improved the students' performance and optimized the teacher's workload.
