There are several factors that affect student engagement in online instructional videos

  1. Shorter videos are more engaging (4-6 minutes) 
  2. Video engagement is important - speak directly to your students in your presentation
  3. Use your voice to bring excitement, interest, and understanding of the content
  4. Be concise - use a script to guide your presentation - reduces cognitive load for learning
  5. Show yourself periodically in the video speaking to your students (supports engagement)
  6. Utilize screen capture or writing content (facilitating the learning)
  7. Recorded classroom lectures (30 mins - 1 hour) should be chunked (broken up into several videos) for clarity and engagement
  8. Don't use video to lecture to your student; utilize tutorials or case studies to engage them on the content
  9. Utilize other content (videos, text, audio, simulation, case studies) in support of your video for clarity and understanding
