The optimal video length is 6 minutes or shorter -- students watched most of the way through these short videos.
And engagement times decrease as videos lengthen
The take-home message for instructors is that, to maximize student engagement, they should work with instructional designers and video producers to break up their lectures into small, bite-sized pieces.

Start with a positive message. Thank the student and say something positive about his or her work before discussing areas that need to be improved.
Help students see the connection between the course and their lives. One way to do this is to use the private journal feature found in many learning management systems.
Use rubrics. Rubrics provide criteria for students to see how their work compares with expectations and helps them focus their work.
In a survey of their students, approximately 70 percent liked having audio feedback because they could hear the instructor’s voice, which makes the message more personal, “almost like a conversation,” Cleveland said.
