Videos have been more and more used in the last decade for educational purposes, given the value they may have for representing dynamic processes or complex systems which need to be observable for a proper and deep understanding. However, the video in itself does not enable students to actively interact with the contents, nor to support those reflective processes which can really foster learning. To overcome these limitations, traditional videos can be enriched with additional information, to be transformed into hypervideos. This contribution presents a short selection of illustrative experiences conducted by a group of teachers who used a specific hypervideo tool developed in the framework of the project ‘Scuolavisione’ in the Swiss vocational education system. The aim is to show which kind of instructional activities can be supported by hypervideos and how both teachers and apprentices perceive this tool with regard to its ease-of-use and usefulness. Results show that hypervideos can be used to flexibly support different pedagogical strategies, and that the tools presented here are perceived as usable and effective both by teachers and apprentices. This encourages further research on hypervideos as a new means to put video-based learning into practice.
