Journal Name:

Publication Year:

Abstract (2. Language): 
The purpose of this preliminary study was to qualitatively explore the results of using low-cost educational videos, oriented at complementing face-to-face and distance courses of the Degrees in Industrial Engineering, Industrial Organization and Aeronautical Engineering at ETSEIAT (Technical School of Industrial Engineering and Aeronautical Engineering of Terrassa). Qualitative analyses showed that the use of innovative teaching practices enhances students ‘motivation, promotes dynamism in the classroom, improves students’ self-learning and increases the perceived efficiency of the learning and teaching processes, without substantially raising costs.
