Let's Go to the Video -- Or Not

A recent study of 463 students by the Harvard University Department of Romance Languages and Literatures (here) investigated the acceptance of various instructional technologies by undergraduate and graduate students.

Students found uploaded course materials, interactive syllabi and recorded video lectures to be most useful. However, not all technologies were equally useful to undergraduate and graduate students. Undergraduates greatly preferred recorded video lectures (as compared to graduate students) and graduate students preferred links to supplemental materials (as compared to undergraduates).
