The use of instructional video podcasts (IVPs) in education appears to have increased rapidly with the advent of video-based websites like Kahn Academy© and TeacherTube©. Research on the impact of IVPs on student learning is limited. The purpose of the following study explore the impact of IVPs on 172 middle school mathematics students. Students rated the podcasts positively in terms quality of explanation, supporting diagrams and graphics, and impact on learning. Students also noted that they liked video podcast better than using textbooks. Student performance based on pre-and post-test increased significantly with a mean improvement of 64%. Significant gains were also observed for students with special needs.
