Robust analytics, vast transactional infrastructures, and massively scalable courses have been produced in 20 years of online education. And yet, the crucial last mile—the lecture itself—remains largely unchanged. This talk will explore documentary instruction and the cinematic lecture. It will show various techniques including animation and documentary filmmaking strategies that enhance the storytelling aspects of the lecture and create branches into deep learning. Case studies from Columbia University, the George Washington University, Engineers Without Borders, the Bainbridge Graduate Institute, and other pioneers in documentary instruction provide real-world examples of this innovative approach that bring the art of storytelling to online courses.
