The purpose this study was to develop a comprehensive, theory-based model for creating instructional video podcasts designed to present and discuss worked examples. Sixteen design characteristics, organized according to four categories (establishing context, providing effective explanations, minimizing cognitive load, and engaging students), were used to develop 59 pre-calculus videos for 856 first-year university students. The results indicated that, overall, students had positive attitudes toward the use of worked-example video podcasts, noting they were useful and improved their understanding of pre-calculus concepts. In addition, self-assessed knowledge in five pre-calculus concepts increased significantly, based on pre and post evaluations. It is concluded that the model proposed in this study is a reasonable starting point for creating effective worked-example video podcasts.
