Sangdon Yoon
As online learning increases in importance as a part of higher education, methods of understanding the most important instructional aspect of online learning, the video lecture, become more important. Video lectures are used as the main pedagogical tool in online learning situations and understanding how they can be used is of great value in research into online learning. The purpose of the present study is verifying the effect of online lectures on EFL students learning and motivation. A total of 111 university students taking online classes participated in the study. To verify the effect of video lectures, a survey was conducted for the present study. This survey was conducted among students who were taking classes with many video lectures. The results of the study revealed that, as video lectures increased in media variety, there was a correlation with higher levels of student motivation and learning. Furthermore, higher levels of student engagement in video lectures correlated with higher levels of learning. However, engagement in video lectures did not affect motivation. These results are of value as they increase understanding of how online videos can improve the learning environment while having more media variety can engage students and improve their learning.
