Short video models as a learning resource can easily be integrated into existing undergraduate, graduate, and professional development courses. This project includes the development of video modules to educate students about the role of codes and standards in engineering and technology disciplines, particularly fire protection engineering and related fields. The objective of the videos is to help students and other viewers understand the standard development process and the applications of codes and standards. The standards to be addressed in the videos are product standards (e.g. ones from Underwriters Laboratories and Factory Mutual), installation and maintenance standards (e.g. standards related to systems from the National Fire Protection Association), and model codes (e.g. ones from the International Code Council and the National Fire Protection Association). This paper addresses the need for the videos, the development process, and testing the first module prepared for the effectiveness. The module was tested on a freshmen level undergraduate course.
