Wow, that is impressive.
When I went to Coastline Community College for my AA most classes I took had Video and/or audio lectures, and for a dyslexic guy like myself that helped out TREMENDOUSLY!
However in my undergrad program at NYIT NONE had this benefit.
My online MBA at UMASS did not have any videos.
VARK and the cost of video production
Two thoughts on this thread:
1. VARK - Some folks learn "Visually", others learn "Audibly", still others learn by "Reading" and some learn by "Kinetics". I try in teaching to engage students in as many of these approaches as possible.
2. Video production cost - Tools like "Tegrity" and "Mediasite", lower the cost of video production. These require no production people to generate new content. Further, Tegrity will capture PowerPoint - and index the lecture so that a student can quickly get to the part of the lecture they want to see.
