VIDEO vs. TEXT vs. PODCAST - What's Your Opinion? How Does it Change Your Learning and Which Do You Prefer?

So far, you were able to read or listen to the texts we have provided and occasionally watch a youtube or TEDtalk video as part of the additional material section. How did the different materials change your learning and course experience?

If you need more inspiration to answer this question, check the following TED Talks, text and TED Talk podcasts in order to decide what type of resources change your learning:

VIDEO
This TED Talk by Salman Khan even talks about using videos for education.
Video by TED Talk.

And here are 7 more talks about learning and MOOCs and about education in general.

VS. TEXT
Or would you rather read up on this topic? Then maybe you would prefer this article by Yaro Starak on "What Content Is Best – Audio, Video Or Text".

VS. PODCAST
The NPR TED Talk Podcast interviews keynote speakers and presenters about their TED talk. You can either watch the talk or listen to it. Here are two episodes about learning for you to try out:
The first and the second one.

NOW IT'S TIME TO REFLECT THIS IN YOUR JOURNAL

Think about what type of material and content suited your needs best and spiked your interest the most. Are you more #teamaudio, #teamvideo or #teamreading?
What changed your learning and your course experience?
Write down a short explanation in your journal and make sure to set the entry to public, so the course community can read and comment on it.

Reading allow more concentration. You need more time to get in a full concentrated mood, but when you there is very effective.
Listen allow you to be multitasking. You can listen and do other mechanics stuff.
Video engage's your attention. Is the most complete media of the three here referring: Have image, sound and a history behind. And in the present is interactive too. You have the possibility to put questions, links and comments in some points of the video.

After that, personally, I prefer a good video, with images who transmit the message we tried to pass. But we can not pass one discrete line: Exceeding the visual information!
