Kaltura MediaSpace Webinar: Using video to support learning strategies like retrieval practice and elaboration – Option 1
September 3, 2020 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PMFree
Video as often used as a method of delivering content in order to “get information into students’ heads.” There is no doubt that this form of instruction is critical to supporting student learning, but delivering content is not learning. To see student learning, we need to provide opportunities to “get information out of students’ heads.”
In this webinar, the facilitator will provide participants with examples of how the Kaltura Video Quiz tool, a service available to all Minnesota State employees, can be used to support evidenced-based learning strategies like retrieval practice and elaboration. Retrieval practice and elaboration mixed in with spacing, interleaving, and feedback are strategies that have strong evidence supporting greater student learning compared to strategies like rereading, highlighting, or summarizing (Dunlosky, Rawson, Marsh, Nathan, & Willingham, 2013).
The facilitator will show participants how to turn instructional videos hosted on Kaltura MediaSpace into video quizzes that students can use for retrieval practice or elaboration. The facilitator will walk participants, step by step, on how these video quizzes can be added as learning activities within a D2L Brightspace course. For those not interested in using video quizzes, the facilitator will also provide examples of how students can create videos as a way to demonstrate learning via elaboration or how instructors can provide videos as form of feedback to students.
