Five Ways to Improve Learning from Online Lectures


We surveyed 165 undergraduates about how they view and learn from online lectures. Based on survey results we propose five ways students can learn more from online lectures:

  1. Focus and reduce cognitive load
  2. Take and use notes more effectively
  3. Use self-explanation
  4. Use self-testing
  5. Take advantage of spaced practice
