MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: We analyze the factors that determine the number of clicks in the Like button in online teaching videos. We perform a study in a sample of Spanish-language teaching videos in the area of Microeconomics. The results show that users prefer short online teaching videos. Moreover, some other features of the videos have shown significant impact on the number of “likes”. Videos produced by entities other than Universities, conducted by female instructors, where the instructor appears on the screen along with slides or graphic tablets are preferred in terms of “likes” received.
