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.

No answer is right; no answer is wrong!

"I still consider text the most powerful medium online because it’s the easiest to create, can be downloaded in seconds and people are used to reading content online (and I’m bias because I enjoy writing the most). Others will argue that video is the future, and we all know that television killed the radio star."
I read these words in course material and I agree almost 100% with them. But I don't think it is the same for others. There isn't an exact or worng answer to the question. Therefore it's important to propose more type of resources in a digital leraning course to satisfy everyone’s learning needs
