HCC Edutube's team recommends for more engaging instructional videos the study titled, "How Video Production Affects Student Engagement: An Empirical Study of MOOC Videos", published by computer science professor Philip Guo from the University of Rochester; MIT Ph.D student Juho Kim and edX VP of engineering Rob Rubin.

Finding Recommendation Shorter videos are much more engaging. Invest heavily in pre-production lesson planning to segment videos into chunks shorter than 6 minutes. Videos that intersperse an instructor’ stalkin g head with slides are more engaging than slides alone. Invest in post-production editing to display the instructor’s head at opportune times in the video. Khan-style tablet drawing tutorials are more engaging than PowerPoint slides or screencasts. Introduce motion and continuous visual ﬂow into tutorials, along with extemporaneous speaking. Videos where instructors speak fairly fast and with high enthusiasm are more engaging. Coach instructors to bring out their enthusiasm and reassure that they do not need to purposely slow down. Students engage differently with lecture and tutorial videos For lectures, focus more on the ﬁrst-watch experience; for tutorials, add support for rewatching and skimming.
