Why Use Video for Teaching?

Video is a powerful medium for communication in education.  Contemporary audiences have a very high literacy in understanding the structure and language of video.  Utilising the strengths of the video medium can make drastically improve the learning experience of students.

Video can add flexibility and efficiencies with learning.  Playback control means learners can pause and review when necessary and embedded video in modern blended and online learning experiences enables learners to engage with content whenever and wherever they are.

Video is extremely useful for things students find interesting, things students find difficult, and things that students ask repeatedly.

UniSA implements many different types of video for learning across a range of courses and teaching mediums.

Drama as a Learning Aid

UniSA's media teams have access to screenwriters, directors, and actors, creating the possibility for drama-based video productions to be made and used as learning aids for students. Used in this way, drama can apply information and learnings to a mock real-world situation that will engage students in entertainment whilst teaching and applying key concepts.
