What does video technology bring to your academic institution?
ATTENTION – RETENTION
Video presentation garners attention, enhances engagement between student and teacher, and results in a greater level of retention, improving exam results and boosting graduation rates
TRADITIONAL – FLEXIBLE
As well as adding a new dimension of learning for a traditional student in the classroom or lecture hall, video technology also provides the flexibility for students who prefer or require the ability to study out of the classroom, off campus, and during non college hours.
REPUTATION – REACH
University selection and courting student enrollment has become a highly competitive environment. Those organizations offering newer technologies, flexible learning and knowledge delivery systems, long distance studying, and a comprehensive video library, stand apart from the others and benefit not only from higher enrollment, but can command higher levels of intellect and academic success from both the faculty and student body.
TIME – COST
Imparting information through video technology ensures consistency of presentation, and frees up the teacher to encourage the students to contribute to the learning process through discussion and debate. It also changes the allocation of teaching time. Traditionally, the teacher engages with the students who ask questions, but those who don’t ask tend to need the most attention. More time away from merely presenting, allows the teacher to target those who need the most help rather than the most confident.
Video presentations can be re-replayed for different classes and for subsequent years. Students can access material on demand for both classwork and end of year revision, developing a certain self-sufficiency. This frees up faculty from the need to constantly regurgitate the same course work, and concentrate on delivering a higher quality of education
through expanded research and receiving supplementary training. The education process not only improves but becomes more cost effective.
