Work-in-Progress: Videos and Video Podcasts - What Engineering Educators Want to Know, and Need to KnowAbstract The use of recorded video for education has been around for several decades since theadvent of film. But recent technological advancements and the mass proliferation of devices thatcan be used for viewing videos require certain questions to be re-visited and new questions to beanswered. A project was recently initiated to study these questions within the context of using videosand video podcasts as a teaching/learning tool in engineering education. Chief among them is thequestion of how its use can improve the teaching/learning of engineering material. A survey of theliterature regarding this question is currently underway, with a particular focus on the performancemetrics that have been used. Another major question relates to how these videos and videopodcasts are produced and made available for dissemination, and how much time and effort thisrequires from an already over-worked engineering educator. So the various approaches, and theirpros and cons especially with respect to time/effort are also being looked at. The full paper will elaborate on the above, and provide a few examples from the author’sown experience on using videos for teaching and learning. It will also include the analysis ofstudent surveys conducted in the author’s classes during the Spring and Fall semesters of 2012 togauge their opinion on such videos.
