Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
This is a real case study done by a seasoned researcher about a relevant topic.
There are no learning objectives identified. This would have to come from the context of a course students are taking. There is no challenge to produce learning on the webpage. This would also have to come from the course. Various theories are reviewed with regards to the research question. There is no reference to where the students can learn about the theories, so it would be easy for students to get lost because they do not have a basic understanding of these theories.
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
The video is a clear recording. There is a PowerPoint and the presenter follows the outline. The audience actively contributes clarifications and examples. The audio track would be useful to students who are visually impaired.
There is only the passive viewing of the video. Since it goes for one hour, it is likely many students will get bored and not pick up on much of the material.Beyond the lecture, there is no other visual activation. This is not friendly to persons who have audio disabilities. There are no captions or transcript.
