We love watching videos. YouTube and other similar video sharing websites have made viewing and sharing videos as easy as possible. However when it comes to learning from videos, there is certainly a hitch. For example, consider I have to write a paper on Entrepreneurship and I am referring to some videos on the topic. Let’s say I look at the video below :
Referring to a video as shown above for learning purpose can be really time consuming and painful for the following reasons:
- I will have to go through the entire video and then find out if there is anything relevant. If it is a lengthy video, I will be spending too much time going through the entire video.
- Since there is no table of contents, I cannot skip portions and move on to more relevant portions.
Now look at this video here :
- The contents are clearly listed and segregated.
- The duration is also indicated.
You can either listen to the entire lecture or jump to portions that interest you. In this case, even if it is a 2 hour video, you do not have to worry much because you can always skip and look at stuff that interest you or is relevant to you.
What do you think about the point I am making here? Please drop in your thoughts in the Comments section.
