Abstract

Instructional videos have become a popular method of disseminating course content to the learner. Assessing videos that are effective in meeting learning objectives and student engagement can be challenging. In this literature review, key components of effective instructional videos, as well as learning theories were extracted from 30 research journals. Cognitive load and learner engagement were frequently mentioned when assessing the effectiveness of videos. Based on the Cognitive Load Theory, an important factor is to minimize extraneous load (Brame, 2003; Mayer & Moreno, 2003). Too much capacity on the learner results in compromised learning (deJong, 2010). According to the journals, videos should contain research-based principles of effective instructional design. Recent findings have demonstrated that intermittent testing, note taking, and changing task at hand reduce mind wandering and improves learning (Szpunar, Jing, & Schacter, 2014; Moraldi, Liu, Luchies, Patterson, Darban, 2018). Additionally, videos segmented into shorter lengths minimize boredom and distractions (Gilboy, Heinerichs, & Pazzaglia, 2015).
