While YouTube is just freaking fantastic for all things related to procrastination and chuckles, would it shock you to know that it has educational value? It shouldn’t…YouTube has everything.
We’ve been over how pathetically awful I am at math and science several times now, but somehow, I always pull a B or better. Last semester, I had college physics. Between then and the last time I had a physics course (cough*highschool*cough), I remembered all of…well nothing. I remembered zilch. The first day of class was considered ‘review’.
It might as well have been a foreign language. To make matters worse, I’m terrified of raising my hand to ask a question because I just know I’ll sound either a. Like a valley girl or b. stupid. A. and b. are synonymous, but I digress.
I do a lot of self teaching. I could spend three hours in lecture and absorb maybe 20% of it. It’s not that instructors go to fast…I just like to mull over things a lot longer than we do in class. There’s a difference, I swear! So at home, this is my proven-to-work method. Instead of slapping my giant overpriced edition 824095 textbook on the table, I reach for my laptop. I go to the YouTube homepage and simply type in the search bar the specific concept I need help with and bam. YouTube professors galore. I assume most of these professors have these YouTube accounts so that their students can refer back to lesson plans, but they are beyond helpful for anyone looking for pointers or a bit more of an explanation.
The best part about these YouTube tutors is that they’re free! AND you can pause, rewind, and fast forward whenever you need. Take advantage of YouTube for homework help!
Khan Academy is a great channel to subscribe to for general homework help. From physics to calculus, these tutorials are amazingly helpful.
