This paper reports on a design-based research for designing, implementing, and refining a problem-based learning (PBL) course on educational digital video at the University of Lapland’s Faculty of Education. The course builds on a combination of problem-solving in small group tutorial sessions and realizing a practical hands-on project during which the students design and produce educational videos about the topics they are studying. The research has a dual goal of refining the PBL course and designing a pedagogical model that combines video production with PBL to support students’ meaningful learning. The data were collected through a questionnaire for the course students, audio recordings of students’ interviews, and students’ performance results. Results and their implications for the course design and for the video-supported PBL model are presented.
