Findings from a February 2021 study prepared for colleges and universities reveal that online and video training can be very effective – even more effective – than traditional teaching methods.

In 2020, most higher education institutions were forced to close their doors. Student education has moved from the classroom to online and video training.

Many educators believed that student learning would suffer. However, for some surprising reason, this turned out not to be the case.

The study “Video enhances learning in higher education: A systematic review” reported:

Not only was the video training effective, but on average the videos led to better learning outcomes compared to other methods, such as face-to-face learning.

Key reason: pause, read, practice

Although several reasons were given, one of the most important was that with video training, the student controls their education, not the teacher.

“This was because the student could repeat segments of a video until they understood better what was being taught,” says Matt Morrison, communications manager at Kaivac, developers of training tutorial systems. line and contactless cleaning.

“It put the student in control, not the teacher. “

To conduct the study, the researchers analyzed 105 previous studies regarding video learning, involving a group of 7,776 students, mainly in the United States and Europe.

According to the researchers, “We identified over 100 randomized trials that had used video in higher education, and on average, videos led to better learning outcomes compared to other methods, such as ‘face-to-face learning’ (emphasis added).

Regarding the study’s application to the professional cleaning sector, at least one manufacturer has developed on-board training systems that allow the cleaner to take a break from work, play a video, and then practice what has just been learned.

“It seems that’s why video training has proven to be so effective,” adds Morrison. “Not only is the student responsible for his training, but he can also impose his own rhythm and [can] repeat the segments as often as they want.
