Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Delivery of 'content' knowledge instruction in secondary school and university education contexts is increasingly moving from teaching or lecturing to students in classrooms or lecture theatres to delivering the same content through online video. Clearly, this is a different pedagogical mode, and simply video recording a lecture is not best practice for enhancing students' content knowledge and understanding. This Special Issue of 'Education Sciences' is devoted to research studies that have, in various ways, addressed the question "What are the best pedagogical approaches for creating video lecture material to enhance learning?" Are there identifiable features of video content delivery lecturing/teaching that demonstrably lead to enhanced student understanding? Are these different at different levels of education (e.g. for adolescent and adult students) or for different subject areas (e.g. arts, humanities, sciences)? Are different video media (e.g. voice-over-slideshow, lecturer, voice-over-screen capture) or particular combinations of media more effective for learning? This Special Issue seeks to gather research evidence to address these and other questions about the use of online video for content knowledge delivery in education.
