Abstract: E-learning concept is becoming a vital need for higher and lower education students. It has been observed from the interaction with students of Gulf region that they have challenges with the online method of knowledge delivery in higher education. There are multiple reasons for this belief. In this case, there is possibility to add some extra features in the online or virtual classes to make them more beneficial and more informative. If the video lectures are added to these classes, there can be much better utilisation of the content. To explore the possible effects of video lecture, on the cognitive empowerment of the students, the current research was conducted on 124 undergraduate students of Qatar University (QU), which is one of the leading higher education institutions in the GCC-based country Qatar. The data is collected by distributing questionnaires and QU registration department data. Relevant statistical tools are applied to evaluate and analyse the data.
