Educational Video Technologies of the Future

Educational Video Technologies of the Future

It’s January, and that always brings thoughts of what the future will bring. So what do educators expect (and look forward to) from educational video?

Last summer, a number of educators were kind enough to give us some insights into what technologies they were excited about in our State of Video in Education survey. When we asked them about the future, here’s how they were looking at some up-and-coming video technologies.

What Educational Video Technologies of the Future Are Educators Interested In?

How important do you think the following cutting edge video technologies will be to education in the future

So back in the summer, folks felt pretty optimistic and excited by the promise of some of the video technologies that are currently emerging.

97% of our respondents thought that interactive videos were going to be important. We agree, which is why over the summer we started adapting our new interactive video product to be more tailored for educators. We’re looking forward to seeing the next generation of learners “choose their own adventure” as they interact with the videos they watch. You can expect more news on that in the coming months.

Coincidentally, the same percentage (97%) looked forward to self-paced curriculums. Giving learners more influence over their own learning and personalizing learning paths is clearly going to be a major force.

94% see the importance of predictive analytics. We agree here, too – it’s part of why we’re so invested in Caliper. We’ve already seen some of our enterprise clients taking advantage of data standards like Caliper and xAPI. Meanwhile, 93% believe in the potential of auto-scoring against a rubric of video assignments/assessments. Big data is coming to education, and it looks like it’s going to be making some big changes in the future.

89% see potential in VR/AR/360 video and its ability to build immersive learning environments. Some of our own clients are already taking advantage of what VR has to offer in the classroom.
