One factor driving the use of interactive video is research showing students get distracted when a lecture or presentation lasts more than 10 minutes, according to the book Brain Rules (Pear Press, 2008) by John Medina, a developmental molecular biologist at Seattle Pacific University. Applying that line of thought to learning videos, professors and instructional designers are developing videos that offer a new activity at least every 10 minutes. “Interactivity becomes important so students can get the conception they are doing something,” says Klaas, who conducts a popular annual presentation at UBTech on creative applications of video instruction. “The more they are doing something, the more they are learning.”
