Abstract

More than four decades ago, PCs and home videodisks were first used to deliver full courses [7]. The intervening years have seen a growing maturity of video technology for its creation and dissemination, yet many universities had been reluctant to adopt its use. This can be partly attributed to perceptions about videos not being a good substitute for lectures [5] and having prohibitive production costs, even though it is known that even low-cost filming in informal settings can be very effective and positively affect student engagement [6]. Indeed, while there had been a huge uptake in purely online education (e.g MOOCs, Khan academy, P2PU), the heterogeneity of content and style in traditional universities have been the main barriers to effective use of data and reuse of educational materials [2].  
Forced by COVID-19, however, these barriers to adoption have suddenly dropped. This has brought about a number of challenges for those not already using video in their teaching, including scalability of the learning activities and assessment.  As a response, and informed by our previous discussions with a community of practitioners on the use of video in our institutions [1,8,9,10], we got together in March to plan a workshop (#HCIvideoW), to discuss with Human-Computing Interaction educators with diverse backgrounds, experiences and at various degrees of technology adoption.  
The workshop participants, now over forty members and growing, continue to meet regularly, acting as a community. Concrete outcomes have been shared [3] and this has already led to new developments, including a new video-based tool for students to share physical prototypes developed in direct response to the discussion in one session [4]. Together, we are continuing to explore ways to improve instructors’ teaching experiences to become better prepared for a post-pandemic world.
