However, for videotape feedback to be effective at least two important factors need to be considered: the learner’s skill level and the period of time for which this type of feedback is utilised (Rothstein and Arnold 1976). Here, research suggests that skilled performers benefit from unaided video replays of their performance, whereas novices tend to be overwhelmed by the information available in the video and require the addition of specific verbal cues to point out critical information (Newell and Walter 1981; Rothstein and Arnold 1976).

For example, video replays are particularly useful to skilled performers (Rothstein and Arnold 1976), although in order to be effective for beginners, videos should be supplemented with cues designed to focus the learners’ attention on critical aspects of the skill (Kernodle and Carlton 1992; Newell and Walter 1981). Finally, in line with the guidance hypothesis (Salmoni et al. 1984), the frequency and timing of presenting augmented feedback should be considered in order to facilitate optimal learning.
