 How To Use Online Videos In Computer Science Education

Whether you teach computer science in a classroom full of young people or aspiring college graduates, adding online tutorials to your curriculum can be a valuable training tool. There is no better time than now to advocate the value and fun of coding among your students. 

Research resources

Most teachers assign research projects so that students can seek relevant and useful information on their own. It can take the form of printed, electronic, or online sources. Every one of them has its limitations.

Additional printed and electronic materials may be difficult to find or use outside the library and classroom. Online video materials are easier to access; however, some sources may have less accurate information. With the ability to search the internet, students may likely find the wrong information. Online training is an excellent research tool because it combines the benefits of authority and accessibility.

For individual or group research, try to ask students to identify a common problem they have in their work. Then ask them to find a specific, viable solution by researching professional online videos. Then you can have them demonstrate their discoveries in class so that everyone can learn. Online videos are very useful in combining self-inclined learning and collaborative learning.

Learning in Different Mediums

Students who can learn a skill or portray knowledge in several contexts are more likely to master a skill or concept. Classwork and lectures are typical contexts, but homework and field trips serve as others. Because it is impossible to hold classes at a student's home, the best thing is to have professional video authors work with you.

Students with mobile devices can watch and re-watch video materials anytime, anywhere. Harness these different contexts to allocate research or practice. For practice, assign topical video tutorials that cover the concepts you teach in class. The new context will strengthen these ideas and show new methods of approaching the same problem. You can also play a video in class after lectures to instill the point.

Benefits of Video Tutorial to Computer Science Students:

  1. Videos create a more captivating sensory experience than using printed materials alone. In fact, students can see and hear the concept taught and process it in the same way they process their daily interactions.
  2. They provide an accessible resource that can be tracked from anywhere with an internet connection. Videos are available on a variety of devices, including smartphones, laptops, and tablets. This allows viewing at the comfort of the student and from wherever he or she is.
  3. Videos improve knowledge retention because they can be stopped and played back as many times as needed. They can also be revised long after the initial lesson has been taught.
  4. They help a lot in learning computer science subjects, especially those complex or incredibly visual, such as step-by-step methods, problem-solving, or scientific and mathematical formulas.
  5. They boost literacy and digital communication skills, which are important in the 21st century.

Last Word For Tutors

As a teacher, one of your most significant teaching tools is to sustain your own skills. Online training is a cost-effective and convenient method. Use video content in the classroom to show students how to seek and apply fresh information. Pick something you have learned and show that you have critical thinking abilities. Share with the students what and how you learned. Make these moments memorable and spontaneous. It is a powerful way to show your students some real examples.
