Abstract

This research aimed to reveal the opinions of the university students who conducted original educational videos context for the experiments in the Biochemistry laboratory course. Participants were fourth year students (N=40) of the Mathematics and Science Education Department, in Chemistry Education Program. A case study was used and carried out during the Spring term of 2014 at the Faculty of Education of Dokuz Eylul University in Izmir, Turkey. The students designed and took participation in educational short videos. Besides, each group students prepared poster presentations of their video at the end of the 14-week implementation process. To collect data, semi-structured interviews were used. The interview results of the research showed that learning was more meaningful and valid through this laboratory course because the students attended the course with interest and favor and motivated positively. Eventually, the educational short videos can be a powerful convincing learning tool for students.
