Does digital scholarship through online lectures affect student learning?

  title={Does digital scholarship through online lectures affect student learning?},
  author={Shelley Kinash and Diana Knight and Matthew McLean},
  journal={J. Educ. Technol. Soc.},
University lectures are increasingly recorded or reproduced and made available to students online. This paper aggregates and critically reviews the associated literature, thematically organised in response to four questions. In response to the first question - does student attendance decrease when online content is made available - research indicates that students primarily use digital content for review and revision rather than as a substitute for on-campus attendance. Analysis of the research…

Whether first-year medical students make deliberate decisions about attending nonrequired lectures and factors that influence these decisions are sought, specifically addressing the potential impact of electronic materials.
Optional student use of online lecture resources: resource preferences, performance and lecture attendance
For one of three examinations, there was a significant negative interaction of note use and attendance in predicting examination performance providing some support for the hypothesis that students may be able to successfully compensate by viewing online lecture resources when unable to attend class.
Asynchronous access to conventional course delivery: a pilot project
While the asynchronous video-on-demand service proved popular overall, ESL students were markedly heavier users of the system and reported most enthusiastically on its benefits, yet many of the observed benefits remain to be confirmed by future research.
