Being a TV media student you constantly have to know what new content is being put out
there, is it original?, and what’s good about it that I may recreate the ideas from it. Using YouTube as a source I can use watch as many videos as I like for free and use the videos as an example and inspiration of how I would like certain shots or ideas to be recreated.
However, that’s not the only reason why i think YouTube is a good source for education.
YouTube helps to convey ideas more efficiently as sometimes learning by using books as a resource you can miss vital information and it can be hard to dissect the vast amount of information. For example when we were studying The history of the internet I found that hard to break down and fully understand because we all learn and absorb information differently. However using YouTube allowed me to search through the many videos where your never short of options and understand it in a more graphic and engaging way.
