4 Practices used in Distance Learning Videos


After the COVID-19 outbreak, 'Distance Education Videos' became a hot topic, and it appears that this trend will continue in the years to come.

After seeing a 30-second explainer video and comprehending a subject, many of us have said: "These kind of films should have been accessible when I was young." This trend has continued in recent years. As a result of visual and aural cues as well as approaches, videos aid to improve the educational process.


For catchy educational films, media theories and associated studies typically stress the relevance of four stages. No need to panic, we're not going to get into rocket science.

Stage 1 : Signaling

  • At this stage, keywords are used to emphasize essential aspects of the educational topic.

  • If three distinct colors might be utilized for three different types of data then the information to be conveyed is categorized based on color or contrast.

  • The use of color or contrast is used to draw attention to the link between two pieces of information.

  • In addition, brief words pointing to the video's goal are often utilized.

Stage 2 : Segmentation

  • Each topic is broken down into small video episodes, with each episode consisting of a chapter or portion of it.

  • According to studies, videos should be no more than six minutes in order for the intended information to be absorbed and recalled more effectively by the audience.

Stage 3 : Weeding

  • Music and other distracting audio components are removed at this point.

  • Complex backgrounds are simplified visually.

Stage 4 : Matching Modality

  • At this point, Khan Style videos are used as an example.

  • Information is often conveyed via visual and auditory components, or 'signs'.

  • If possible, use narrative language and explain yourself in a honest and inspiring manner.

  • Illustrations are employed to bring the subject back to life in the minds of the listeners or viewers.

  • In addition to the voiceover, animations are employed.
