Videos play an important role in today's digital era. According to Cisco®, video (business and consumer combined) was 59% of the total Internet traffic in 2014.

But are videos always the best choice?
In this lecture we examine the benefits of the use of video in learning as well as its limits.Tips on how to minimize those limits will be explained.Example short videos that demonstrate success (or not) stories will be shown.Finally, guidelines for making good videos for education will be given.
