A class that is all YouTube all the time

Posted by Dr. Laura Guertin

I don’t recall exactly where I saw a story about this, and I’m not really sure what I think about this. A course where the entire content is delivered through YouTube? I can see that. But to have students submit all assignments and have all discussions in YouTube? I’ve viewed the introductory video to the course (embedded below) and read this article, and I wish there was an ending video that was a summary and her reflection on how the course went. This might be answered in her video book Learning From YouTube (yes, I said video book, by The MIT Press). This instructor offered the class in 2007, 2008, and 2010 – but did any other instructors jump on the YouTube delivery wagon? I wonder if this model continues today.
