Universities around the world are constantly looking out for innovative ways to impart education to students. By using computers and computer applications in teaching the education sector has surely reaped the benefits of technology. However technology constantly undergoes an upgrade and educators need to be adept at incorporating new technology in their current pedagogies. This research focuses on demonstrating the effectiveness of using video clips as a pedagogical tool as compared to other traditional methods of teaching such as white board method and slideshows. Use of video clips in teaching has given rise to the flipped classroom model and this research aims to elucidate the benefits of this new teaching style. In flipped learning, part or all of direct instruction and explanation is delivered through videos and the class time is used for engaging students in collaborative, hands-on activities. The most meaningful learning in a flipped classroom occurs as a result of efficient use of the extra class time (Szparagowski, R. 2014). In order to determine the effectiveness of video usage in teaching both qualitative and quantitative data are explored in this study.
