Abstract

To overcome space and time limits in education environment, online education is becoming increasingly crucial. Most online education is based on video lectures. Video-based lectures are delivered to the learner through the language of the instructor. Hence, the language (word) of the instructor affects learners during the video discourse. In this study, we examined the effectiveness between emotional (positive and negative) and nonemotional (neutral) words for learning effectiveness on online education based on video lectures. The results indicated that learners remember emotional words better than non-emotional ones. If educational content based on video lectures is implemented using emotional words, then it will improve the learning effectiveness in online education through video lectures.
