Video technology platform, Kaltura, has published its second annual State of Video in Education report, an international study that examines the evolving use of video in education.
Key findings include a considerable gap between student and teacher digital literacy levels, indicating that many teachers will need to enhance their skills to keep pace with students – 40% of respondents rate students’ digital literacy levels as ‘very good’ versus 23% for teachers.
The survey also found that students and educators are becoming much more confident about creating their own video content: 93% of respondents say that teachers create custom videos, while 88% call out students as creators of videos at their institutions.
Video is becoming pervasive: 67% of respondents say that video is used in student assignments, while 59% say it is used for lecture capture.
Using video for remote teaching/learning is now commonplace in higher education (66%), while flipped classrooms are becoming a widely used form of pedagogy (46%).
Video is also used in a wide range of use cases outside the classroom including: recording campus events for on-demand viewing (53%), marketing and communications (50%) and even as part of the admissions process (24%).
Respondents included educators, instructional designers, IT professionals, digital media professionals, senior administrators and students from around the globe. Around two thirds were drawn from higher education and a quarter from K-12 institutions.
