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.

It really depends which media I prefer. Usually I prefer videos to see the trainer. But at the same time I always like to have a script or something I can read, where I can highlight important passages or add annotations.
How did it change my course experience? As Salman Khan mentioned in his TED talk, the good thing is that I can rewind the video when I didn’t understand something or can pause it when I am tired. In my opinion that’s the biggest advantage is that I don’t have to bother the teacher to repeat something which I did not understand the first time.
