Technology: More and more online, hybrid, and F2F courses are using "video lectures" and deploying media that are expected to be passively consumed by students. As a result, a recent hot topic of research and discussion has been the exploration of ways to actually engage students during the viewing of these resources so that 1) Their retention of the material goes up, and 2) They are more likely to stay engaged and watch the entire presentation. This presentation will include examples of using Panopto's built-in "Quizzes" feature to offer short assessments/reinforcing questions during the video -- which hopefully will keep the students more engaged, and also increase their retention through questions focused on the video's main instructional objectives.
Evidence: This is a new project on our campus, but the literature, based largely on research targeted on video resources offered in various MOOCs, points clearly to 1) The need for strategies to keep students engaged, and 2) That content creators carefully consider the length of video resources as they relate to engagement.
Broader Impacts: The goal of any course is for the student to master the material. If "video lectures" or other media deliver that course material, and it fails to engage students, it follows that learning on the part of the student is not enhanced.
