YouTube in Higher Education

If you judge the trends in how we consume information, online video would have to be one of the top areas. Students watch video, and if you are not using this medium to share at least part of your message, you are not effectively reaching most students.

It is very easy to create a tutorial video for your students to enhance their understanding of a topic, to learn the steps necessary to do something successfully, to understand the practical application of a theoretical concept, and much more.

Advantages of using YouTube:

  1. Free and unlimited storage
  2. Easy to use
  3. Students voluntarily watch videos to enhance their understanding of a topic, to learn the steps necessary to do something successfully, to understand the practical application of a theoretical concept, or to find a video that they can use during their own presentations.
