In the chapter on Podcasting, I have a great example of a student talking about his group's video on cell mitosis. It is a great video that they obviously had fun producing. You can see it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aW3iUo_Q6HQ&feature=channel_page.
I asked him if it improved retention to learn this way and he said it was way more fun and when he needed to study for the test he could just watch the video instead of reading notes. I was confident after seeing all the work that was put in to the research for this project that the material would be retained.
