Transforming Computer Science Pedagogy: An Exploration of Self-Recorded Videos (SRV) as a Teaching and Evaluation Tool

This study introduces Self-Recorded Videos (SRV) as a new method to enhance students’ performance in computer science coding assignments. Conducted with 41 students in an online Operating Systems course, the study required students to create SRVs for each assignment. The aim was to deepen student engagement and understanding. Post-semester survey results revealed a strong preference for the SRV method, with most students believing it significantly improved their performance. This suggests that SRVs could be a potent tool for boosting student engagement and performance in computer science courses.
