College instructors all over the world use You tube to post videos about a wide variety of college subjects. Other video services, like TED and PBS do the same.

If you learn better by watching/ listening or are confused about a topic you come across in class, or simply need more information about a topic, do a YouTube search in addition to a Google search.


Use your phone to learn

Squeeze in learning throughout the day. Watch or listen while you are doing ordinary household tasks (cooking, laundry, etc), eating, riding the bus, commuting. waiting in line, in between classes,  etc.
