Abstract:

Educational technology is the integration of the science of education with the advances in technologies like information and communication to address fundamental issues of teaching and learning. The present study was conducted in the Barpeta district of Assam with the objectives to develop participatory videos on mushroom and vermicompost production technologies and assess the performance of digital videos as extension teaching aid in terms of comprehensiveness, usefulness and degree of convincing. The study also assessed the constraints faced by both technical and resource persons in preparation and use of digital videos as teaching aid. Digital videos were prepared on mushroom and vermicompost production technologies with the active participation of the master trainers. The performance of the digital videos as teaching aid was assessed by showing the videos in two groups consisting of 25 numbers of trainees in each group during the training session. The comparative study using the match sampling technique was undertaken with another two groups with same numbers of respondents each in which the digital video was not shown during the training session. Results revealed that 90 per cent of the respondents trained with digital video found the message comprehensible as compared to 42 per cent of the respondents trained without the video. More than 75 per cent respondents found the videos useful, while 64 per cent respondents from the group not seeing digital video found the training useful to their vocation.  Further, after viewing the videos, majority of the respondents (90 per cent) understood the procedure of vermicompost and mushroom production technologies and were convinced that these could be tried back home with locally available resources.
