AbstractThanks to the emergence of digital video, producing and distributing video is now possible in ways that were previously limited to video production companies. Yet the functions of current digital media players differ little from the VCRs play, rewind, fast-forward, and pause functions, which may not support learning tasks appropriately. Therefore, we designed an enhanced digital media player, ReView, to better support video-based learning. To test ReViews usefulness, advanced music students in the Young Artists Programme of the National ArtsCentre of Canada were given the opportunity to use the media player to review a video recorded lesson. In this paper, we present the students ratings of the usefulness of ReViews features, and the frequency with which the features were used. We discuss these findings with respect to technological support for browsing video content. Additionally, we present findings related to the content of the video that the students chose to watch. Specifically, we found that students prefer to watch themselves play rather than review instructions received from a coach.
