College Teaching Tip of the Week – Vol. 1 Issue 3

Make YouTube Work for You

Prominent learning theories tell us that when students learn by both seeing and hearing, they are more likely to retain that information.  Therefore, to help your students prepare for class, consider having them watch YouTube videos.  There are free online videos that relate to nearly every college course.  Assign the videos as “homework,” and consider posting the URL’s online so students can navigate to them with a simple mouse click.

If you want more information about using YouTube videos, refer to YouTube and the College Instructor.
