Video feedback is the concept of providing people feedback in terms of a visual images when learning motor skills. The idea is to provide the user with visual information about how things progress during learning to give them an improved option to correct mistakes.
Normally the learning of skills is based on verbal feedback, of what is correct and what could be improved. Research has shown that even though that verbal feedback can improve the speed of motor skill learning, visual presentation of skill performance can further improve the sometimes steep learning curve.
What has to be considered with video feedback is the method of visual feedback that is provided to the athlete or student?
If the movement is slow the playback of video in the same speed that it was recorded seems ok. But in most situations the movements or skills that is difficult to learn is normally those with high speed or force. Thus if the video is played back in the same speed as it has been recorded its normally difficult for the athlete to comprehend what to improve and what to consider ok. So if you want to use a video delay/feedback system its important that it can play back the videos at slower speeds than it was recorded.
When using video it sometimes takes away the focus of learning because of the complex steps involved in the process. Remember to avoid using to much time during class to handle video feedback. Aural feedback is sometimes better than spending time fiddling with cables and video tapes.
SkillCapture has been developed exactly to accommodate the above mentioned difficulties.
