Video tutorials have proven to be an effective method of learning in traditional, virtual, and hybrid educational settings. The reason that this approach is so effective is that it gives students the power to truly learn at their own pace.
In a traditional classroom setting, students can’t put their teachers on rewind or fast-forward. Thus, if they are struggling with a particular concept, they can’t repeatedly ask the teach to go over the concept an indefinite number of times. Likewise, once a student has mastered a concept they can’t instantly make the teacher go on to the next concept.
EBSCO is the most popular host for libraries. Most colleges and universities across the nation use EBSCO host, including those located here in Baton Rouge such as Louisiana State University, Southern University and A&M College, and Baton Rouge Community College as well as our local public and private schools. Their database include content from such providers as:
- Thomson Reuters
- Encyclopedia Britannica
