This article is mostly review, though it's useful review. Tony Bates writes, "here is now much more good quality video suitable for educational purposes freely accessible over the Internet" and so there are many more examples of good practice. That said, I wonder how true this is: "a video clip or program rarely stands on its own as a teaching resource." Bates adds, "It will usually need to be put into context and students will often need guidance on how to use the video material in their studies." Sure, perhaps in the context of a university course. But I would imagine video is used more often for learning outside the educational context. People set their own context, and if guidance is needed, it will need to be in the video.
