To assess the feasibility of incorporating video applications into distance education courses, faculty and student produced videos to aid in transferring knowledge from nursing courses to clinical practice. Student videos validated prerequisite physical assessment knowledge and skills, allowing identification of students who needed remedial work, therefore, facilitating progression into the advanced content. Faculty-generated video vignettes simulated family dynamics, thus making abstract content concrete. Vignettes were also used to evaluate students' attainment of counseling techniques through testing applications.
