Video and Online Learning: Critical Reflections and Findings from the Field by Anna Hansch, Lisa Hillers, Katherine McConachie, Christopher Newman, Thomas Schildhauer, Philipp Schmidt Video is an essential component of most Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and other forms of online learning. This exploratory study examines video as an instructional medium and investigates the following research questions:• How is video designed, produced, and used in online learning contexts, specifically with regard to pedagogy and cost?• What are the benefits and limitations of standardizing the video production process?
