As a supplement to traditional classroom instruction, online video tutorials were created and made available as just-in-time support to enhance undergraduate business students’ academic performance in a required introductory statistics course. The study results showed the availability of video tutorials enriched students’ learning experiences and enhanced their academic performance. The results suggest that the learning benefits of the videos were instrumental to those students with average learning ability (students with course grades of B or C) and those who struggled to understand the course materials during the class.
