Peer Reviewed Article and Program Outcome Four.

“In a work training environment videos can be supplied to learners in either an in-person or online environment. This reduces the trainer’s teaching time and helps to maintain the learner’s attention.”

This short paper demonstrates Program Learning Outcome four.

4. Apply research to support learning in a technology-enhanced environment.

Learning in the Current Generation (Gurvitch & Lund, 2014) discusses the implications of including video creation as part of student instruction. It is used as an example of how technology can enhance instruction and learning. Simple technological integration can enhance student learning by catching and keeping the students attention and providing a different type of instruction project that appeals to visual and auditory learners. The process of video creation also appeals to a student’s creative side and it can be used in collaboration with other students. The authors step readers through the process of utilizing movie making software such as Plotagon, to create animated shorts for classroom and student use. They follow up with instructions for creating a grading rubric for grading student created assignments (Gurvitch & Lund, 2014).

In the field of animal centered research, videos can provide a wealth of information from basic care to visual representations of problems and precautions. In a work training environment videos can be supplied to learners in either an in-person or online environment. This reduces the trainer’s teaching time and helps to maintain the learner’s attention. While the creation of videos by students in a work training environment may be limited due to time and resource restrictions, the instructor could take advantage of available software and create videos for instruction. It would be advisable to use the rubric guidelines when creating a video for classroom use as it would be quite difficult to teach a group of people with a poorly made instructional video. This article, while limited in scope, has a wealth of information for students and instructors alike.
