The University of the South Pacific (USP) is a regional university, established in 1968, serves twelve independent island nations of the South, Central and North Pacific. In Semester 1 of 2017, an undergraduate introductory accounting information systems course at the University was offered on face-to-face delivery mode. This course was supplemented by an online presence via the University’s learning management system and utilised several tools for its delivery of learning and teaching. One such tool was the use of instructor-generated short videos. At the end of the Semester, data was collected on the student viewership of the videos and a survey was carried out to evaluate the effectiveness and usefulness of the instructor-generated short videos in the course, and to gauge student satisfaction on the overall quality and general appeal of these videos. This paper reports on the findings from the student viewership data and the survey. It also briefly reviews literature on the use of videos in education; in particular, short instructor-generated videos for delivery of learning and teaching experiences in the Accounting discipline, followed by the methodology adopted for the survey. The paper concludes by noting limitations of the study and recommending areas for further investigation and improvement.
