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:

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.
Type of Material: #teamvideo
In my experience these three materials are important to digital learning, maybe videos are more engaging and also audios but if you are learning in an environment where there is not an easy access to an internet connection then the reading material will suit better and will give less problems to the students. In general I think that the type of material chosen for corporate digital learning depend on the types of students, their background, their previous knowledge and their skills both technical and academic.
