Engagement, Micro-lecture, Student learning
The traditional, hour-long teaching mode that is so well-known to on-the-ground students has a little spot in a web-based learning condition. Nonetheless, a shorter and more firmly engaged micro-lecture can help to draw in students and add a media punch to a course. Psychological science demonstrates that students have a restricted limit concerning learning, as far as the time and preparing various stations of data, making it essential that course substance is conveyed as compactly as could be allowed (Clark and Mayer, 2008). This research paper explores the influence of micro-lecture on the learners in the context of China, as shown by these following objectives. Students are encouraged to learn a vast ocean of knowledge via micro-lecture. Students are expected to arouse learning interest and improve students’ engagement in classroom activities. Students are expected to expand their learning content and cultivate self-learning habits during the class session. It brings significant benefits to students, lecturers, and education quality management to keep pace with times in educational reform.
