Educational Conundrum of the Week – Learning through Video, Why the Demand?

An instructor suggested that more Blackboard video tutorials be made available reminding us that video is a great learning tool. I reflected on why video is such an effective means of teaching and learning. I then reflected on YouTube and asked myself why it was my go-to source to learn many new things. Sequential learning was what first came to mind; the next video is in queue ready to watch if I have time for more. Do we provide that in our online and hybrid courses? Mmmm. What is your go-to source for learning and what makes it so appealing?
