Tweet: Immediately Re-Watching Lecture Videos Doesn’t Benefit Learning

A new research paper suggests that immediately re-watching a video lecture doesn’t lead to any greater learning.

The study equates re-watching a video to re-reading text material, which is a popular learning method but, proven as less effective learning strategy. 

According to the study:

re-watching a video lecture does not encourage individuals to build a richer representation of the content, thus leading to a more passive mode of viewing that puts little demands on attentional control, ultimately leading to more mind wandering.”
