A few months ago, I spent some time looking at YouTube, as video resources were cropping up more and more from educational and other organisations. Some questions occurred to me, such as:
- What is the educational potential of YouTube?
- How does the site work?
- Is there such a thing as a YouTube community?
- Are individuals better at developing audiences on YouTube than organisations?
- How do you get to the good stuff when looking for videos?
I explore some of these issues in a new article on YouTube for Fun and Education, published in ALISS Quarterly – plus, there is an accompanying set of slides which are available on SlideShare.
The screenshots from the various videos should be clickable links that take you through to YouTube or all the videos are all available as a YouTube playlist.
