In the current digital era, competitiveness of educational institutions is defined by the ability to satisfy the needs of smart video-learners. It explains active transition to video-based knowledge sharing, like substituting traditional lectures with ‘flipped classroom’ approach. However, creating video materials consumes huge amount of resources hindering adaptation of this practice by universities. This paper aims to estimate resources and profitability of flipped approach implementation. The assessment focuses on video-creation process for flipped classroom and is based on the experiments conducted in Lappeenranta University of Technology. Results of the research provide estimates of needed resources and expected payback period of adapting flipped classroom as well as reveal conditions under which it becomes more resource-efficient. Our conclusions suggest that despite initial resource consuming, flipped classroom realization leads towards lean and cost-effective lecturing.
