Why is the "book shelf" still such a common background for a lecture video? And how come we see a "talking head" in front of it in so many cases? Does it really make sense that lectures recycle their old presentation slides into a video? If each surrounding space reflects a particular meaning on the speaker, how can we decide on where a lecture should be performed?
Video as a time based media offers unique ways for online teaching. Almost every course on MOOC platforms such as edX, Coursera, Futurelearn and Iversity uses video as a form of knowledge communication. The webinar will give insights into different video styles, based on a study of 448 MOOC videos from all scientific disciplines. It will focus the discussion on the different surrounding spaces used and evaluate their pro's/con's.
