Video vs Text vs Podcast by Jared McGill


Today I am going to be writing about Video vs Text vs Podcast.

Video is a electronic device that you can see and gain information, but it is unique in its own nature, because a video can be a way of sharing information through a image which cant be done with a text.
Text can be either electronic or hard copy, the crucial thing about writing a text is that you will be able to write the information out which is helping you the user to store information.

Podcast is device in which you can hear information. The interesting about a podcast is that you can listen to information while doing something, and it can be an advantage for those who do not like to watch or write information.

In my opinion I believe that Video, Text, and Podcast can be crucial way of learning information in different forms that suits the user.
