Sink or Swim: Maximising the potential of video streaming

Fill, K. and Ottewill, R. (2006) Sink or Swim: Maximising the potential of video streaming Innovations in Education and Teaching International, 43, (4), pp. 397-408.

Record type: Article


Amongst the many recent developments in learning technology, video streaming appears to offer a considerable range of benefits for tutors and learners alike. For these to be fully realised, however, various conditions have to be met. Merely making streams available and directing students to them, does not necessarily result in quality, or indeed any, learning. Drawing on material from the literature and the World Wide Web, as well as recent project experience, this paper discusses the potential effectiveness of video streams as learning resources in higher education within the context of current and possible future technologies.
