The exploratory case study reported here used an action learning approach to examine the impact of online video on students studying a first year mathematics unit aimed at non-mathematics majors. After this intervention, the students completed a written questionnaire to determine their views on the impact of online video material on their understanding. Although most students were frequent users of online video only a proportion viewed the online video material. Two thirds of students who viewed the online video found it useful for visualising and understanding the practical applications of exponential function. The findings of this pilot study are encouraging and provide impetus to repeat the intervention, and develop online video material in other difficult areas of mathematics.
