What is a course video?

A course video is a video used as part of a digital education course. A course video might be the main component of a course's lesson or lecture.

How long should my course video be?

We always suggest keeping your course videos simple, short and clear. Limit your course lessons to 15 minutes to ensure the viewer has time to watch, review and reflect on the video.

What is a good format for my course video?

Consider the format of tell, show, do. First explain the theory (tell), demonstrate the idea in practice (show) and then allow the viewer to complete the task (do). This structure can help make your videos clear.

What should I include in my course video?

Include clear step-by-step instructions and a visual to support what you are saying. We recommend a screen share or slides to support the information you're sharing.
