Abstract:This study focuses on the improvement of video lectures. The aim was to investigate if in-video questions could increase the concentration and motivation of students and therefore yield a significant positive effect on the learning outcome. The 40 participants were randomly assigned to two conditions. Participants in the experimental group got four in-video questions while watching a video lecture with an approximate length of 30 minutes. It was about brain development through the use of technology. The control group watched the same video lecture without in-video questions. All participants had to answer the same knowledge test and evaluation questionnaire at the end of the study. The research questions were if participants of the experimental group got higher scores on the knowledge test and the evaluation questionnaire than the participants of the control group. All participants were students of universities and between 18 and 28 years old. There is no significant difference found in the evaluation questionnaire between the two conditions, but all participants scored high on it. This indicated that they liked the study and the material. For the knowledge test, there is a significant difference found between the two conditions. The experimental group remembered significantly more information than the control group. Throughout the discussion of this study the importance of this research is lined out as well as its novelty in comparison to previous studies. At the end of the discussion there are suggestions provided for further research.
