Scaling Up Use of the Asynchronous Video Learning Model: An Institutional Implementation
Tuesday, October 18 2:45 PM-3:05 PM Location: Waialua
Abstract: Video allows for an increasingly high fidelity online learning environment which can increase student perceptions of teacher immediacy and social presence and may provide a powerful way to build connections and provide feedback between students and instructors. The purpose of this study is to examine how a higher education institution adopted and implemented an online learning model that uses asynchronous video to achieve its goals. The Asynchronous Video Learning Model (AVLM) was developed and studied at the course level by Griffiths (2009a, 2009b, 2010), but no previous study has looked at the institutional adoption of asynchronous video. Using student course evaluation data from 26 courses, and rich description of the Brigham Young University-Hawaii (BYU-H) implementation context, this research will address the institutional adoption and implementation of AVLM, as well as students’ perceptions of interaction with instructor and peers.
