The IVS is based on the award-winning method innovation Social Video Learning. Social Video Learning combines the benefits of video with those of face-to-face exchanges to promote reflection and action skills. At the core of Social Video Learning are time-marked (audio) comments in videos that encourage learners’ interaction, attention and transfer thinking. Relevant or unclear aspects can be identified and discussed directly where they occur. This increases student motivation and supports the successful acquisition of knowledge and skills in the long term.
Via our IVS demo environment you have access to various explanatory videos.
