The quantitative analysis included frequency distribution, non-parametric correlations, and ordinal logistic regression. In the quantitative results, participants' identified benefits and implications of the YouTube strategy that confirmed and went beyond previously established research. More specifically, the ordinal regression analyses identified specific benefits that predicted participants' intention to the YouTube integration strategy in their own teaching and researching. The qualitative data which were analyzed using content analysis provided supporting details of the benefits and implications of integrating YouTube videos as supplements to lectures. The findings have implications for the use of new media in the university classroom, especially when teaching digital natives.
