Abstract: In an increasingly digital world, empirically-supported research that evaluates effective learning from online videos should be explored. Many current online educational videos are not class lectures that build upon each other, but rather are short and simple worked out problem sets. As part of a larger line of research designed to explore online video learning, this research first addressed the broad question, “Do students learn from online videos?” All participants were given a pretest, asked to watch a 10-minute microeconomics video from the Khan Academy (two videos on the law of demand were combined into one), and then given a post-test. There was a statistically significant between the pre and post-test which suggests that students learn from watching online videos.
