We’re delighted to present the results of our 2019 State of Video in Education survey! 1,400 of you from around the world gave us your feedback on how you’re using video today; now it’s time to see those results!
98% of respondents see video as having a part to play in personalized learning experiences, one of the major growing trends in education. 98% also think interactive video will be important to education and anticipate self-paced classrooms.
“Video has become a de-facto technology in the tech stack for any educational institution today. As a company that powers video experiences for hundreds of global colleges and universities, including 20 of the top 25 schools in the US, it’s important we understand how video is used across campus and beyond to identify trends across all levels of the educational process, and further drive innovation using video in education,” said Dr. Michal Tsur, Kaltura’s Co-Founder, President and General Manager – Enterprise & Learning. “As highlighted in our report, as classrooms continue to evolve, interactive video will be key in building more immersive and active—rather than passive—environments for students to learn in.”
Meanwhile, in today’s classroom, 82% of respondents see students’ expectations for how much video should be part of their learning experience as increasing. It’s not surprising; nearly 100% of respondents agree that video skills a are necessary part of today’s workplace. But 86% think that it’s educators’ jobs to help students acquire these video skills.
As online learning has exploded, signs are strong that schools are increasingly building virtual classrooms to complement the physical ones. The majority—72%–report using at least some lecture capture on campus. More than 50% want even more classrooms to be captured than is currently happening. Meanwhile, 72% report using video for student assignments and 66% use it for remote teaching and learning. Nearly half see teachers using video for personal introductions in online environments.
While 74% report currently captioning their videos, 17% are still creating captions entirely internally, leaving room for greater efficiency through automated captioning. Analytics, too, has huge potential for growth, with only 34% currently looking at their video analytics for insights for instructors and students.
91% of educators report that video increases the satisfaction of students with the learning experience. But more than 50% of educators still do not have full availability of easy-to-use capture tools. 63% of students lack easy-to-use video capture tools as well, a major challenge to the stated goal of helping students acquire the video skills they will need in the future.
