An Adaptive Time Reduction Technique for Video Lectures


Abstract Lecture videos are a widely used resource for learning. A simple way to create

videos is to record live lectures, but these videos end up being lengthy, include long

pauses and repetitive words making the viewing experience time consuming. While

pauses are useful in live learning environments where students take notes, I question

the value of pauses in video lectures. Techniques and algorithms that can shorten such

videos can have a huge impact in saving students’ time and reducing storage space.

I study this problem of shortening videos by removing long pauses and adaptively

modifying the playback rate by emphasizing the most important sections of the video

and its effect on the student community. The playback rate is designed in s... (more)
