What are Video Lectures?


Thanks to the emergence of video lecture platforms, such as Khan academy, a shift in STEM pedagogy is underway. As video lectures support flipped and blended learning, many teachers are assigning them as homework, instead of the usual exercises. In turn, teachers are facilitating the exercises and activities during class time instead of giving lectures. A major reason video lectures are gaining traction is because teachers can now take advantage of the face-to-face time with the students by doing more interactive and collaborative tasks. Additionally, not all the teachers transmit the concepts through lecture in a clear and clever way, so students now have access to high quality recordings from the best speakers all over the world. Students can come to class prepared with questions based on the video lectures, and teachers can use class time to answer those questions and spark a deeper understanding of the concepts.
