German science YouTuber Jacob Beautemps, moderator of »Breaking Lab«, got inspired by the question to what extent YouTube videos can support learning efforts. In his video »YouTube vs. Schule Wo lernt man mehr?« (»YouTube vs. school – where do you learn more?«) he presents relevant studies, but also invites to participate in his survey »Was macht ein gutes Wissensvideo auf YouTube aus?«
The survey is part of Jacobs PhD thesis. He is currently developing an artificial intelligence tool, which analyzes emotions, cognitive load and learning progress of video audiences to find out: What makes a good knowledge video?
Good question. We’re waiting for answers, too!
