With the rise of virtual learning opportunities, how do educational publishers create materials that focus on engagement but also avoid the pitfalls of too much screen time? Getting the lesson across in a comprehensive and concise manner is the primary goal, but it really sinks in when students get involved. That’s where our short-form instructional videos come in! 

Online videos should not feel like classroom lectures. Combining a teacher’s knowledge with engaging activities that amplify the lesson or animation that showcases the most important takeaways injects excitement and increases curiosity. Working with teachers and designers, CSA Education can develop and deliver videos, from simple to complex, to fit any lesson plan.

We’ve partnered with teachers around the country to create a few quick and engaging educational videos as samples. Covering various topics in math, science, ELA, social studies, and the arts, CSA can create videos tailored to any age and grade level. We work to keep each video within the 3–4 minute range, allowing a short introduction into each topic while being careful not to add too much to a student’s growing amount of screen time. These budget-friendly videos are designed to fit into lessons, to act as stand-alone introductions to a topic, or to be something fun for students to watch and do with their families.

To view our samples, please see our Vimeo page. If you’re interested and would like to learn more about the team at CSA Education, please contact Ingrid Benson at
