Honors Thesis


With increasing technological advancements, online resources such as educational videos have become an essential study tool for college students. Educational videos deliver information in the form of visual representations, animations and text which is organized in a condensed and organized manner. In this creative research project, two educational videos were created for a Human Physiology course at the University of Texas at Arlington. One video was over systemic and pulmonary gas transport/exchange and the other was over hemodynamics. The program, “Procreate,” was utilized to create the illustrations and “Explain Everything Whiteboard” was used for screen casting. This research paper evaluates the characteristics of an effective educational video and how students use videos as a study tool. From current research, it is seen that the accessibility, time efficiency, and creativity of educational videos make them widely utilized by college students.
