The purpose of this study was to transfer some experimental activities designed by the researchers in line with the curriculum on light-matter interaction into audio-visual mediums that can be used in schools with insufficient laboratory facilities, in this way providing needed support for educational materials, offering guidance for teachers and contributing to student academic achievement. The study was conducted with second-year student teachers (n:148) in the format of demonstration experiments or videotaped experiments. The results showed no significant difference in the effectiveness of the demonstration or videotaped experimental format that means videotaped experiments could be alternative for demonstration experiments.
