Abstract: This paper presents the findings of a study that examined the effects of the instructional video on students’ learning of technology in an online computer application course for pre-service teachers. An instructional video was developed and added to the online instruction of one learning module to explore the effects of the instructional video on students learning of computer application. A Chi-square test was conducted to examine students learning outcome and yielded a significant result. The result revealed that students who used the instructional video were more likely to complete the learning task successfully than those who did not. The findings of this study indicated that the instructional video, when designed and integrated appropriately, was effective in assisting students learning of technology in an online environment.
