What is the advantage and disadvantage of Interactive Video?



Advantages of Interactive video:

(i) The advantage of interactive video is that the amount of information immediately available is enormous because of the immense storage capacity of a video disc. A single video disc can even store the entire Encyclopedia Britannica.

(ii) It has the potential to present text, graphics, graphics film and sound in varied ways.

Disadvantages of Interactive Video

Because of its high controlled nature, learners have hardly any choice over the order or presentation of the material or the tests.

Thus, they cannot follow up their interests and queries as they arise. In consequence, learning may become mechanical rather than meaningful. Inspite of some difficulties, interactive video may turn out to be the educational technology of the coming years.
