Digital literacy is an essential skill for 21st century life. It encompasses many elements such as the ability to source, evaluate and synthesise digital information. It also includes the ability to create and share content using digital tools, whereby creators can express views, opinions, and facts in a coherent manner. Video is an extremely popular medium, especially with university-age students. This study seeks to examine student experiences (benefits, challenges, learning) in creating video as an assignment, in place of a traditional written piece of work.
