Use videos to introduce new information and text to review it, as each is better suited to different stages of the learning process.

  • Different formats of information support different ways and stages of learning.
    • Provide materials to support students at each step of the learning process.
  • Videos are great when learning something for the first time, but when students have already been introduced to a topic, having to wait through a video can be counterproductive.
  • Articles are great for reviewing material students have already been introduced to.
  • Projects are great for practice, people don’t always realize how much practice students need when learning to program.
