Draw All Learners In: The Power of Immersive Video-based Lessons
Concurrent Session 2
Join Jason Webb, Syracuse University’s Instructional Analyst, and PlayPosit Co-Founder Sue Germer for an inside look at how their instructional design partnership has led to a powerful HyFlex approach, innovation, and data-driven impact.
Syracuse University began its partnership with PlayPosit in the Fall of 2019 with the goal of immersing students in flipped, hybrid, and online videos. Since then, Webb and his team have been personalizing the online and asynchronous learning experience with video: learners move at their own pace, instruction is captured in real-time, and learners can watch on their own terms. Unfortunately, though, this creates a disconnect for faculty assigning the content -- are students actually watching the content? Moreover, are students actually understanding the content faculty created? How do you know?
This session focuses on reconnecting faculty to learners in the online learning environment through the medium of video-based lessons. Among other questions answered during this session, here are a few:
- How do your faculty make their video content-rich?
- Pedagogically oriented?
Video is increasingly foundational for the success of online courses. But why are some applications successful while others struggle to engage learners? This session highlights how Syracuse has harnessed the power of PlayPosit’s interactive video platform to make video lessons hyper-engaging while using data to inform future instruction.
