Benefits of Video for Learning

Video is perfect for all types of learners, whether they are an audio learner or a visual learner – both can benefit from videos in an online course.

DigitalChalk: Benefits of Video for Learning

Often times when people are looking for a video tutorial, YouTube is the number one resource. YouTube allows you to find any how-to video you’d like, from how to install bookshelves to using a new camera; the possibilities are endless. Videos are already a large part of our daily lives, so why not incorporate video learning into your online course?

Videos are one of the most engaging types of teaching for online courses. Students find videos to be more interesting and engaging, rather than slowly clicking their way through a slideshow presentation. The movement and sound of the video automatically grabs their attention and helps them to stay more focused throughout the entire course.

And don’t worry, with all of the affordable equipment and easy-to-use editing software available, you can easily make great videos – whether you are a seasoned expert or new to the video recording world. With the DigitalChalk Chalkboard we make it easy for you to upload and organize your videos, to make it the way you want it to be.
