SAGE Digs Into New Streaming Video Study

SAGE shared that an experiment by researchers at the University of Toronto–Scarborough’s Advanced Learning Technologies Lab confirms the value of streaming video resources for learning and shows that it can increase academic performance. SAGE and Mitacs (a Canada-based international research and development consultant) backed the project.

“In this study, students in a sizable online class … were split into different experimental groups. Learning outcomes were measured for students with access to video ‘primers’ compared to students who received the standard instruction without video support,” SAGE notes, “One key early finding is that students with access to the video explanations showed at least a 12 percent advantage on a knowledge and understanding quiz. Principal investigator Adam Frost … explains that this difference is substantial, providing statistically significant evidence that the videos enhanced learning meaningfully.”

In addition, students “eagerly watched” the videos: 90% of students viewed “most or all of [a video], suggesting that they found it useful and/or engaging,” SAGE reports. “The study provides early evidence that video can elevate scientific literacy in undergraduate students.”
