Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is a challenging subject to study due to its highly multidisciplinary nature and the fast change of advancing technology. Keeping pace with these changes requires innovation in pedagogical approach, such as student-authored video, which is presented here. In case studies from two UK universities, students were assessed on video making. The results suggest increased student engagement and satisfaction, as well as acquisition of design skills taught in HCI, not typically taught elsewhere in computer science. Here we share our experiences of using this practice along with key challenges and some preliminary findings from analysis of the student artefact-creation process. We also outline future research directions in this space.
