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.

I prefer video over text and podcast. A video is more interesting as it shows the expression and attracts the listener through animations, videos etc , whereas if we consider text it may not attract as the information provided at times may be too lengthy and cumbersome and if we consider podcast though it saves time and a person can listen to it while doing work yet it may distract a person and the individual may not be able to concentrate on the material the podcast conveys.
