The deployment of audio and video offers various possibilities for enriching teaching. It can make learning more entertaining and help foster student engagement.

Appropriate audio and video can complement teaching while reducing the tedium of standard classroom sessions. Furthermore, careful scheduling of the activities can contribute to helping organise the learning process in a way that is more satisfying for both students and instructors.

This Workshop deals with the creation of short learning videos and their possible applications in teaching, with a particular focus on didactic factors.
