Michail Giannakos, Letizia Jaccheri, John Krogstie


Video learning is becoming an increasingly important part of contemporary education. In the decade there has been an increase of many and diverse forms of research efforts on video learning. This paper focuses on the video learning research of the last years based on 166 peer-reviewed published academic papers. A categorization is then derived from these papers, delineating some basic characteristics of video learning. The taxonomy attempts to look at MOOCs rapid growth through the lens of video-based learning research. We also provide some directions for future research related to the use of video learning.
