New Research on Maximum Recommended Instructional Video Length (2013-11-26)
I don't normally re-blog - this is the first time actually. However, this new research from EdX and University of Rochester should just be presented in its original. In a nutshell, rather than the "10 to 12, and not longer than 15, minutes", instructional video length that I have recommended in workshops, this research implies a much shorter length: 6 minutes. In fact, while the average viewing time for a 6 minute video was 6 minutes, after that, the longer the video, the shorter the time that students watched. 12 - 15 minute videos were watched for less time than a 3 minute video!
