Abstract:This study investigates the design of optimised video instruction for statistics software and how it contributes to learning in a practical context. In addition, the use of video reviews to further optimise video instruction was examined. The video instruction was developed using multimedia assumptions, demonstration-based training processes, and various video principles and guidelines. It was shared to students in the Inferential Statistics course at the University of Twente, and an experimental group received a video instruction containing video reviews. All participants were asked to complete a quiz immediately after watching the video instruction, and complete an assignment within a given deadline. Overall, it was found that video instruction, with or without reviews, was effective at engaging students and contributing to learning as students performed well on the quiz and the assignment. In addition, participants in the experimental condition who watched the majority of the video reviews performed significantly better on the quiz. The current study suggests that optimised video instruction contributes to engaging students and helping them learn, and there are advantages in using video reviews. For further research, a better understanding on what encourages students to watch video reviews is suggested.
