Abstract: A well-documented advantage of distance learning is that students control the time, pace, and pathways of learning. This control over learning is particularly appealing when just-in-time support is readily available. However, providing effective, timely assistance is challenging for instructors and tutors. The time and money required to provide help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week is both time and cost prohibitive. One possible strategy that could reduce the time required to address student questions in a distance learning environment is the use of educational video-clips (EVC). This paper will report on the benefits of EVCs in four key areas: instruction, assessment, administration, and creating community.
