Video of the Week: The OU on Economics

Video is becoming increasingly popular in e-learning. It’s an engaging medium and one that everyone is familiar with considering we spend so much time in front of our TVs and our multimedia devices. Video is also mobile device friendly – videos will run on pretty much all devices and are particularly suited to smartphones with a reasonable size screen. But can you actually learn from watching a video or a documentary on TV? (For more on this : Can you learn from watching a video? ). This video from the Open University teaches us about how the economy works (or doesn’t); pretty topical I think. It also uses humour – something which is sadly lacking from most e-learning programmes (but don’t blame me – clients almost always remove any that I try to sneak in).
