In this study we developed a heuristic worked example video aiming at enhancing upper secondary students’ modeling competencies based on a theoretically derived framework. The video includes interactive elements such as self-explanation prompts which were implemented using the h5p-plugin in a Moodle-based learning management system. To enable transfer, students solved a related modeling task afterwards. We investigated the perceived advantages and challenges of nine student pairs when working with the video and the modeling task subsequently. A qualitative content analysis revealed that students liked certain design features and the possibility of self-regulating their learning while the latter was also perceived as difficult. Students experienced challenges regarding the duration of the video and the transfer of the content to the subsequent task. The results indicate a great potential of the interactive elements. Also, further ways of improving this kind of video are discussed.
