Increasing academic diversity and student numbers has challenged traditional delivery of core practical skills. Utilising Objective Structured Practical Examinations (OSPE's), time spent delivering science practical skills has been reduced substantially. However, student-developed short video resources utilised before and after the practical class has enabled more effective use of practical class time. VLE data demonstrated high video utilisation and attainment was not adversely impacted. Feedback from anatomy, physiology and sport science students has been very positive. These results suggest that larger, diverse practical classes can be trained in a consistent and effective manner by using student-created video resources.
