Video Recipe

Navigating the Internet I found an interesting site, where video streaming is used to present a couple of Mexican-Amercian recipes (Red Kidney beans and rice and Chicken and rice).

Independently from the content and its design, which by the way are good, the underlying pedagogical principles deserved to be commented. It is a good example of instructional design where a talking head explains by doing. Besides watchinge the video, tue users are able, as well, to glimpse some pictures, read the ingredients and the directions, click a couple of links, print the text-based recipe, e-mail it or add it to, what they called, a Recipe Box.

The video is divided in three chunks so the viewer can watch the first part, read the ingredients, watch the second part, read the directions and at the end, see the final video. It is definitively an exquisite use of video streaming.
