The educational use of video on campus is accelerating rapidly in departments across all disciplines from arts, humanities, and sciences to professional and vocational curricula. The aim of this paper is to present a teaching experience developed in the Polytechnic University of Cartagena and, more specifically, in the subject of Numerical Methods for Agricultural Engineers. We used videos to teach our subject at class. The videos were made by ourselves. Our classes were a mixed between the traditional system and the new educational system. Moreover, we tried to adapt the evaluation process to the new European Framework for Higher Education. A survey was carried out using video at class in order to compare our students’ grades with the rest of university students’ grades. We did the survey during four academic years and the results were strongly positive for both students and teachers. We could find an increase in motivation and in the interest of our students. We could also appreciate our student quite concentrated during the video sessions. The previous one was reflected in the final grades. In the future we are going to introduce e-beam at class and we would like to study the students’ performance with this new educational tool.
