The Effect of Watching Video Clips on Student Performance in a Construction Science Course at an Undergraduate LevelThe vehicle of instruction in regular classrooms has traditionally been lectures, occasionallyusing a chalk board for writing important concepts. This process essentially requires only short-term memory acquisition and an organization that allows for efficient retrieval of theinformation. With the increase in class sizes, most teachers find it difficult to disseminateinformation and engage students in effective learning. The use of information andcommunication technologies is gradually becoming popular as vehicles of instruction. Thepurpose of this study was to examine the effect of showing relevant video clips to the students, inaddition to presenting course materials in a traditional format, on student performance in anEnvironmental Control Systems course. The study population consisted of 35 students each intwo consecutive semesters. Video clips were shown to only group of students; the other groupwas exposed only to the traditional methods. The relevant data was collected from theinstructor’s own data base. A regression analysis was performed to ascertain the relationshipbetween student performance and exposure to video clips. The findings generated from theanalysis of the data indicated that watching video clips has a statistically significant effect onstudent performance in this particular course.
