Emma MOOC: What and How to Teach with Video

Op 13 januari 2017 start een EMMA MOOC van 4 weken "What and how to teach with video" De Mooc wordt verzorgd door Jack Koumni. De volgende twee onderwerpen worden behandeld: 1. Teaching/Learning Roles for which video is potentially outstanding and 2. Pedagogic Design Principles to achieve this potential. De cursus is in Engels.

These two fields will be coverd:

1. Teaching/Learning Roles for which video is potentially outstanding

2. Pedagogic Design Principles to achieve this potential.

Updated from the ideas in the author's book, Designing video and multimedia for open and flexible learning(2006, reprinted 2009).

Field 1 (in week 1):

Potent pedagogic roles for video, leading to robust learning outcomes: a range of techniques and teaching functions for which video is outstandingly capable, due to its distinctive presentational attributes. 
The 33 roles are distributed between four domains: 
Cognitive, Experiential, Affective, Skills.

Field 2 (in week 2):
A narrative framework of pedagogic design principles for video, consisting of 30 individual design principles in 8 categories: 
Hook, Signpost, Cognitive Engagement, Constructive Learning, Sensitise,  Elucidate, Reinforce, Consolidate.

The teacher will illustrate each 'potent pedagogic role' and each 'design principle' with extracts from educational videos that have been used in online courses.

Quizzes, followed by peer and tutor discussion will be  facilitated at several points.

Finally, in weeks 3 and 4, students will consolidate their learning: each small group of students will design a 5- to 8-minute educational video, guided by peers and tutors. The design will be in the form of a video screenplay describing shots, actuality sound, narration -  supported by the following specifications:

1. Target Audience of the video

2. Structural Outline of the video (based on the 'design principles' above)

3. Leaning Objectives of the video (including the rationale for using the video medium,  based on the 'potent pedagogic roles' above)

4. Learning experiences that are complementary to the video  - e.g. segmentation interspersed by quizzes, suitable for MOOC presentation .

Learning Objectives


Students will develop

  • a robust understanding of the teaching/learning roles that video is potentially good at achieving
  • they will also be able to implement the design principles that are necessary to achieve this potential
  • these objectives will be fortified through the final practical exercise: designing a screenplay of an 8 minute video.



Following evaluation of Draft 1, each Small Group will have completed Draft 2 of a screenplay, detailing components of an 8 min educational video, preceded by specification of target audience, pedagogic structure (based on the design principles of Week 2), learning objectives - with rationale for using video for each objective (based on the potent pedagogic roles of Week 1), learning experiences that complement the video.


Certification and Additional Info


A Certificate of attendance will be awarded for students who have finsished at least 70 pc of the course. No fee will be charged for this certificate.

For the final exercise, each small group in the 3-group 'super-group' could grade the other two groups (as whole groups, not as individuals). The percentage these grades should be of the final: 20%. The remainder should come from the tutors for the final exercise.

During the course there are quizzes, but these are not easily gradable: not to be graded.
