Abstract

Traditional ways of delivering lectures in classrooms proved to be inadequate and inefficient. Recently, the education sector is witnessing a dramatic progress and is undergoing a major shift. This shift has been influenced largely by technological and pedagogical trends and the greater worldwide access to the Internet. Videos were seen to be a major contributor to the shift in the educational landscape, acting as a powerful agent that adds value and enhances the quality of the learning experience. To be an effective player, videos continue to have a dramatic impact on higher education challenging the traditional way of delivering course content. While some lecturers may be embracing the use of videos in teaching, there are still lecturers who are reluctant to integrate this technology into their teaching methodology or do not have the skills to do so. This paper highlights the use of videos in teaching undergraduate courses in an international institution in order to boost students' knowledge and enhance their learning experience. Findings of this study will be analyzed and discussed to address the main advantages of this promising initiative.
