History of Students Who Decided That Online Videos Supplement Their Learning

The story was ran originally by eSchool News and unfortunately for us, as for yourself, these sites don't allow comments, at least, you are a registered user. Back in the 2007 we've expressed our thoughts on the service provided by YouTube. The article en mention says that students turn to online videos to supplement readings and lectures more frequently these days. It couldn't be different, nowadays we have plenty of resources online to help students (and teachers) with education technology, and students particularly enjoy pretty much social networking.

Great places where students can find supplement to their readings, classes and lectures are: YouTube, TeacherTube, MathTV and others. No wonder YouTube is getting hundreds of hits from young students looking for math help and educational videos.

From the Technology News for Today's k-20 Educator

"Math videos won't rival the millions of hits garnered by laughing babies, but a YouTube tutorial on calculus integrals has been watched almost 50,000 times in the past year. Others on angular velocity and harmonic motion have gotten more than 10,000 views each...

On tutorials posted to YouTube by the not-for-profit Khan Academy, for example, reactions include: "Now why couldn't my calc instructor explain it that simply?" and "I was just about to leave my physics course. You saved me." One viewer went as far as to declare to the man behind the videos: "You are god of mathematics!!!"
