Online Videos and Courses

Reading is not everyone’s passion and not everyone has the patience to endure a long book. Enters videos! If you look at the number of channels on YouTube alone that are focused on teaching, it is amazing. Add to it the complete sites dedicated to the idea and it becomes mind-blowing. Be it ‘thenewboston’ on YouTube or Khan Academy or Udemy or the MIT opencourseware, the courses are there to teach you everything from Guitar to Programming to basic high school Maths.
Online courses | Online Courses   Heralding a new era of Learning
And it is not only global universities who are doing this – Even in India, Government initiatives like NPTEL have allowed IITs across India to create thousands of hours of curriculum based online videos that not only help students, but also faculties immensely. Many online platforms like My Open Courses are being setup where students can ask questions and get their doubts clarified from top academic minds!
