Chapter 9. New Learning Technology > Video and Videotape

Video and Videotape

Videotape has become part of everyday life. Many families now own a VCR and many have their own video cameras. Video has largely replaced film in the classroom because it is easy to use and handle. Like movies, videos make it possible to see other places and other times. They also make it possible to watch experts or actors demonstrate things such as how to put on a roof, solve a conflict, sell a car, or repair a piece of equipment.

Libraries lend both entertainment and educational videos, or you can buy tapes to have on hand to use whenever you like. In the workplace, companies are beginning to use video-based training because of the flexibility and relative cost-effectiveness of having experts on tape. Because it is feasible to have one student in the room at a time, video makes it possible to train only the people who need it, when they need it.
