YouTube: An Innovative Learning Resource for College Health Education Courses
Burke, Sloane C.; Snyder, Shonna L.
International Electronic Journal of Health Education, v11 p39-46 2008
As college health education professors attempt to engage the Web 2.0 generation of learners, use of innovative video technology resources such as YouTube can be integrated to provide relevant and targeted information to supplement college course content, create a sense of "classroom community," and enrich the learning environment for all students--both younger and older. In this article, a general description of YouTube, its relevance to the field of higher education, examples of how it can be effectively applied and integrated into college health education courses, and some limitations and challenges of this new technology will be presented.
