Experiential Learning with YouTube: Improve student exposure, engagement, learning, and assessment results

YouTube is a multi-functional platform to help faculty improve student exposure, engagement, learning, and assessment results. As part of classroom lectures and exercises, YouTube has proven to contribute to the student experience and aid in the evaluation of individual participation, synthesis, and application of concepts through the development of student videos. Accordingly, YouTube is used to stimulate student engagement and provide just-in-time feedback to develop each student’s presentation skills in an environment that is safe. YouTube has become the gateway to expanded resources, a platform to practice, critique, refine, and distribute student work, and a vehicle to measure student learning.
