Through case studies of existing digital educational videos, this paper attempts to connect, curate, and distill best practices that have emerged from learning sciences research, educational video use, and video production. It is a review of educational, online video best practices and research as of early-2017, written especially for producers and educators who are interested in using video to communicate technical content and to facilitate learning.
