Video lectures are the main teaching tool used in e-learning platforms. Different video lecture delivery formats are used to disseminate course content among students. However, there are a limited number of studies that investigate if and how different video lecture delivery formats affect the way a viewer feels engaged with the video content.
This paper presents results from a pilot study aimed at further investigating this area of research.
During the experiment participants were exposed to five lecture delivery formats: a one-to-one tutoring session, SussexDL a novel video delivery format being developed at the University of Sussex, and three other video lecture delivery formats commonly used in e-learning platforms. Participants were asked to rate the level of engagement they felt with each format. The results suggest that there is a link between the video lecture delivery format and the engagement felt with the video content.
